On a set, he drives directors and fellow actors round the bend with his fussy attention to minutiae. "Five hundred small details add up to an impression," he says. He once went over the scalps of innumerable extras to see if their hair had been properly dyed. Filming That Touch of Mink, he went shopping with Co-Star Doris Day and supervised her purchase of shoes, skirts and blouses to wear in the picture; back in Hollywood, he was so disturbed when he saw the paintings on a set wall that he held up production while he went home and returned with better ones from his private collection.
