Robert Stack Quotes:

Captain Richard Pearson: Captain, are you surrendering? Do you ask for quarter?
John Paul Jones: No sir! I have no yet begun to fight!

Betty Anderson: [Eliot Ness arrives after two Capone men pay his Fiance a visit] Eliot what kind men are they?
Eliot Ness: They are warped, sadistic, rotten little cowards!

By late December 1955, it was announced that Stack was to star in The Proud Ones (1956) but eventually the role was played by Robert Ryan.

In 1999, he received the John F. Kennedy National Award.
