From the beginning of his career as a New York television actor, Jimmy received enthusiastic responses, even for his earliest roles. “You should read some of the letters I got,” he told Bill Gunn, “from old ladies watching television. They tell me about how they want me to wear tighter pants. They have this television club of ladies from fifty to seventy-five and they sit there checking the cats out, then write these dirty letters. Its really hard to believe.”

"Jimmy’s chameleon-like characterizations of Jett Rink are a litany of Hollywood Western postures and a tribute to its great stars, from Gary Cooper to Clark Gable. Significantly, Brando, in his interpretation of Don Corleone in The Godfather, used Jimmy’s power-crazed oil baron as the basis for his characterization, even incorporating cosmetic details like Jett Rink’s pencil mustache and hair in his make-up.”

Jimmy was so adoring [of Brando] that he seemed shrunken and twisted in misery. - Elia Kazan.
