The moves, the voice - the stage presence - he was the best! 40 years + later - he 's still cool.

2. I did watch the movie about him a few months ago.
I never really thought about him until then.

He was a cool guy.

3. I agree completely.
I remember watching his TV show, and then it was suddenly off the air, because he died. I never knew he had a heart problem until it killed him. What a great talent gone too soon.

5. He knew he was going to die young
Which he did, at age 39, after undergoing open heart surgery. He had heart trouble since contracted rheumatic fever when he was 8 years old. And yes he was way cool.

And he convincingly played a very bad dude (Nazi bigot) in 1962's Pressure Point along with Sydney Poitier.

7. Uh,
I don't know how cool he was. I mean, he did marry Sandra Dee.

And he named his kid Dodd, which really blows.

Cool?

I don't know.

But (whispering), his name was "Darin."

8. Maybe if he was running against Richard Simmons and Pat Boone for the title.
Maybe.
