Bobby Darin Facts
Early in his career, while performing "Rock Island Line" on The Dorsey Brothers' "Stage Show"(1956), he had the lyrics written on the palms of his hands, as he had to learn the song on short notice.

Seriously campaigned for the role of Tony in "West Side Story". Ironically he would wind up winning his only Golden Globe in 1962 for "Most Promising Newcomer" in a virtual tie with with Richard Beymer, who got the role as Tony and Warren Beatty who had also seriously campaigned for the same role.

He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 1735 Vine Street in Hollywood, California.
