    (June 8, 1918-March 21, 1987)
    Birth name was Preston Meservey
    Appeared in 'Beau Geste (1939),' 'North West Mounted Police (1940),' 'Wake Island (1942),' 'Reap the Wild Wind (1942),' 'The Dark at the Top of the Stairs (1960),' 'The Music Man (1962),' 'How the West Was Won (1963),' 'All the Way Home (1963),' 'S.O.B.

    He disliked Cecil B. DeMille despite being cast in several of his films.
    He only began acting on Broadway because he was unhappy with the roles he was getting in movies.
    For a musical theater star, he wasn't that great a singer.
    He won two Tony Awards.
    His acting coach was Tyrone Powers' mom.
    He received his first Oscar nomination at age 64 for 'Victor/Victoria.'
    He turned down a very high-paying revival of 'The Music Man' because he thought he was too old for the part by then and he didn't want to disappoint the audience.
    He was unpretentious and friendly to his fans.
