From Autobiography:

My mother had decided to call me Steven after the American actor Steve Cochran, who had died in 1965, the year of Grandad’s and Ernie’s deaths. No biographies of Cochran have ever existed, but his extraordinary face and gangster swagger leap forwards with sexual antagonism and vendetta smiles. In Tomorrow is Another Day (1951), Slander (1957) and I, Mobster (1958) he is malevolently magnificent, hooded by virulent beetle-brows and brute lure. At 48 he had a heart attack and died whilst adrift off the California coast with a yacht full of young females. A post mortem probably wasn’t necessary.
