His paternal grandparents were Swedish, and his father was a United States Air Force general who pushed his son to a military career.
The movie is regarded as one of the first mainstream films to center on a gay romance.
Actor Steve Buscemi was born in Brooklyn, New York, to Dorothy Wilson , a restaurant hostess, and John Buscemi, a sanitation worker.
His mother was of German descent and his father had English, Irish, and Scottish ancestry.
