For a while after undergoing major surgery for prostate cancer in 1970 it seemed March`s acting career was finished. However he was able to give one final great performance in The Iceman Cometh (1973).

 

Shares the distinction with actors José Ferrer, Helen Hayes and Ingrid Bergman of being the first winners of acting Tony Awards when the annual event was established in 1947

 

"Stardom is just an uneasy seat on top of a tricky toboggan. Being a star is merely perching at the head of the downgrade. A competent featured player can last a lifetime. A star, a year or two. There`s all that agony of finding suitable stories, keeping in character, maintaining illusion. Then the undignified position of hanging on while your popularity is declining."

 

[Commenting on the fact that he and Wallace Beery, who both won Best Actor Oscars for 1931-32 due to a tie, had recently adopted children] "It seems a little odd that we were both given awards for the best male performance of the year."

Jack Bennett - I was extreamly fortunet enough to see this man on stage in N.Y. in the play GIDON with Campbell. Both actors were wonderful but it was March`s voice that filled the huge theatre in late December 61. And Mr. March, by far out did Mr. Tracy in INHERIT THE WIND. (5 years ago)
