He was his own worst enemy but its too bad he abused others as well. I'd just like to echo the sentiments that condemned the simple dismissal of Gig Young as 'a jerk'.
You didn't know him personally. You don't know what it was like to be him. None of us do. So, therefore, none of us are in a position to judge him with any validity.

He was sixty four. In his will, he left his Oscar to his agent, but virtually nothing to his teenaged daughter. What a jerk. His performance in the Twilight Zone is one of my favorite TV roles ever and he brought such a tragic sadness to the Martin Sloan character.
Young was an actor who got better as time went on, "getting gritty" with the changing times, reminding me all over again that stars of the 40s and 50s were merely projecting a convincing illusion which they no longer had to maintain with the death of the Hayes Office.
Sadly it would be Young's personal problems--not his self-fulfilling prophecy about Oscar nominees--that doomed him.

Replaced by Mel Brooks with Gene Wilder shortly after filming began because the alcoholic Young was suffering from delirium tremens on the set.
Dreaming of a comeback on Broadway, Young had recently appeared in a Canadian tour of the play "Nobody Loves an Albatross" by Ronald Alexander before his October 19, suicide.
Young is considered the ultimate victim of the Oscar curse, so-called because many Academy Award winners have seen their careers decline or reach a dead-end after winning the ultimate accolade from their peers.
According to his fourth wife Elaine Young , "What he was aching for, as he walked up to collect his Oscar, was a role in his own movie, one that they could finally call a Gig Young movie.
The wording of the will called it "the Oscar that I won because of Martin's help". New York City police found the statuette beside the bodies of Young and his wife.
