Actor
    (March 7, 1909-February 23, 1993)
    Born in San Francisco, California
    Birth name was Frederick Henry Kormann
    Third husband of Joan Crawford (1942-46)
    Appeared in the films 'The Parson of Panamint (1941),' 'The Monster and the Girl (1941),' 'Bataan (1943),' 'Ladies Courageous (1944),' 'Double Exposure (1944),' 'George White's Scandals (1945),' 'Pan-Americana (1945),' 'To Each His Own (1946),' 'The Dark Horse (1946),' 'Born to Kill (1947),' and 'Beat the Band (1947)'
    He spoke with a contrived and fake English accent.
    He struggled to break from B-movie fare his whole career.
    By the 1960's he was reduced to supporting roles in B-movies like 'The Navy vs. the Night Monsters,' which starred Mamie Van Doren.
    He and Joan adopted a son together whom they named Christopher, but the birth mother reclaimed the child.
    The couple adopted another boy, whom they named Phillip Terry, Jr. After the marriage ended, he waived parental rights and Crawford changed that child's name to Christopher Crawford.
    He allegedly walked out on Joan after an argument over whether to screen a movie starring himself or her. Christina - the deciding vote and no dummy - went with Joan (that tore it).
    He collected toy electric trains as a hobby.
    Before his film career, he was a roustabout and truck driver who worked on oil rigs.
    He studied in London at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, resulting in his being turned down for roles frequently for 'sounding too British.'
    He was rejected for military service for being near-sighted during World War II, but took a job at an aircraft factory as part of the war effort.
    When his career declined, he smartly shifted to real estate, making a fortune on investments.
    He remained close to Joan after their divorce and defended her from the charges of abuse leveled following her death.
