Tom Tryon Facts
Was involved at one time with Clive Clerk, one of the original cast members of "A Chorus Line" and an interior designer, who decorated Tryon's Central Park West apartment, which was featured in "Architectural Digest". Tryon later had a relationship, albeit short-lived, with Calvin Culver (aka Casey Donovan), a well-known star of gay porn films. Donovan is often credited with helping Tryon finish his novel "Crowned Heads" on an extremely tight deadline by typing up revisions and offering suggestions.

Alfred Hitchcock considered Tryon for the "Sam Loomis" role in Psycho (1960) (along with Cliff Robertson and Stuart Whitman), but the part went to John Gavin.

Was nominated for a Golden Globe in 1963 for his role in The Cardinal (1963), but suffered immensely under the dictatorial and abusive treatment of the film's director Otto Preminger. At one point during filming, Preminger fired Tryon in front of his parents when they visited the set, then rehired him after being satisfied that Tryon had been sufficiently humiliated. This was a big turning point for Tryon, who eventually retired from acting and turned to writing.
