Kort biografi
Upon receiving the (six-figure) proceeds for option of a book by the film industry: "I don't know what I'm going to do with the money," McCaig told The Post in 1984. "Put it in the bank, I guess. The sum total of the movie sale was that Anne and I couldn't sleep the night we found out about it, and I forgot to milk the cow. Money's fine, but I didn't feel very good about myself, forgetting the cow."
