Original Hollywood bad boy Robert Mitchum once acknowledged his well-earned reputation by stating, "There are all kinds of rumors about me. And they're all true." Among those "true rumors" were the fact that once got so drunk he left his wife in bed to rush home to his wife (man, that's drunk), clocked a horse in the head because he was mad at it, and beat up a costar for trying to sober him up. But before all this bad behavior in Tinsel Town, Mitchum was a bum that rode the rails looking for a job. It was during his time as a tramp that he developed his excellent squirrel hunting skills.
