If you depend on Nick's interviews, you might not get the real story.  He once told the Daily News, "I decided I was going to lie to the press, since I didn't think I had anything to say that was really of value."

In his college years, he was a migrant worker of sorts.  He attended several colleges where he joined the team as a walk-on and played the season.  Hence his educational credits include Arizona State University, Eastern Arizona College, and Phoenix College, all of which he attended on football scholarships.

It is also reported that he had other ways to pay for his college expenses.  In 1962 he was given five years probation on charges of selling fake draft cards.

The same year, he moved to his mother's house in Phoenix, took Allen Dutton's photography course at Phoenix College, and joined the Actors Inner Circle Theater in Phoenix.
