Jason Patric - Jason Patric Kept Jackie Gleason's Cane

Actor Jason Patric has a poignant memento of his famous grandfather Jackie Gleason - he has kept the movie legend's walking stick.
The Losers star admits he tries to play down his link to The Honeymooners legend, the father of his mother Linda Mae, but he has held on to one special item following the funnyman's death in 1987.
He tells the New York Post, "He was private in person although highly loquacious in public. Lots of ways he seemed lonely. I didn't know him well, but I respect that genius and am proud of the bloodline. I have one memento. I kept his walking stick."
