[=McCrea=] was said to have once claimed that he saw acting as a "hobby" of his, whereas he mostly owned ranches and bought many properties around California, becoming a multi-millionaire in the 1940s because of it, as well as his acting career. He was also HappilyMarried for over 50 years to fellow actress Francis Dee and the two of them had three sons -- one of them, Jody, became an actor too.
