Also, he began smoking and drinking at age nine as it's been said that in the 1950s, this habit of smoking and drinking was normal and acceptable even for kids.

Al's say on Acting

Al, in one of his interviews, says that he likes repetition. Also, he said a saying that goes, "repetition keeps me green", and he loves this saying. 

He continued and said that doing so keeps him fresh because the idea of them doing the performances, again and again, people around or the audience might think that won’t the actors get bored of it. 

But Al denies it and says that the creation and expression come in repetition. 

The artist also gave an example, saying that he was doing a movie named Richard, and he says that they were unable to get the court scene with a lot of people around, and Al himself didn’t know what he was doing in the scene. 

Later, they were called for rehearsals and kept on thinking and talking about it, and this kind of work was what the people together tried to figure out something. 

The actor mentioned that in the 85th performance of Richard, well his 85th entrance, he knew about the court scene. 

He explains that by the time he understood it, he was totally there in the scene playing. 

Al admitted that after trying for so many, he gave it up because it was not going to happen, and he just tried going on and eventually found it. 

Was Al arrested?

Well, Al was arrested when he was just 20 years old. He was put in prison. The reason behind this was the police found a weapon in his vehicle. 

Altogether, he spent three days in prison. Nevertheless, on his third day, the police found out it was actually the stage prop.
