Nick Nolte, as I’m sure most of you know, got his start in theater here. I’m not sure if his star quality was recognized. In this Arizona Republic story about one of his early appearances, the best he could manage was a mention at the bottom in a paragraph headed “Others in the cast include …” He wasn’t alone down there. His first wife, Sheila Paige, also was listed in that paragraph.
