Gordon: Some of my friends have jokingly accused me of sticking pins into an image of Frank Sinatra or exercising some other kind of voodoo charm to get him out of the role of Billy in Carousel so that I could inherit the role. As most everyone knows by now, Frank did bow out of the picture. His decision on this matter, however, was reached without assistance--mystic, telepathic or otherwise--from me. But I always felt that I would end up with Billy. I wasn't surprised when my agent called to say that 20th Century-Fox wanted me for it. I was excited that at last it was mine, but I wasn't surprised.
