Ben Gazzara Quotes:

Grace Caldwell: All right, you win. You get your dull little story off your big manly chest, but you make it fast, huh?

Ben Gazzara Facts
In the 1980s, he had a village in Umbria, Italy where he spent time in Italian films.

He was born on the East Side of Manhattan in New York City to Antonio Gazzara and Angela Cusumano Gazzara, both Italian immigrants, who immigrated from Italy. They often spoke Italian at home. He grew up in a building at 29th Street and 1st Avenue where he slept on the fire escape in summer and occasionally heard screams from the patients at the Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital in New York City.

Father, with Janice Rule, of Elizabeth Gazzara.
