The Resume

    (June 24, 1918-January 29, 2003)
    Born in Reading, Berkshire, England, United Kingdom
    Birth name was Peter Shaw Pullen
    Actor turned agent and producer
    Acted in 'Sons of the Sea' (1939) and 'The Exile' (1947)
    Produced Murder, She Wrote
    Married to Angela Lansbury (1949-2003)

Why he might be annoying:

    He dated Joan Crawford.
    His own IMDb page admits he was 'not really a good actor.'
    His poor acting abilities led him to (wisely) shift to working as a William Morris agent.
    When handling negotiations for Elvis in Blue Hawaii, the stipulation included casting his wife as the star's mother (even though the two were only ten years apart).

Why he might not be annoying:

    He served in the British army during World War II.
    He met Angela Lansbury during his career at MGM Studios as an agent when the studio assigned him to accompany her on red carpet appearances.
    The two were married for over fifty years.
    When his and Angela's two kids became involved with drug abuse and the Manson family in California, they picked up and relocated their family to a remote home in Ireland to help them overcome their addiction issues.
    He was his wife's 'silent partner' when he went uncredited as the producer for Murder She Wrote for CBS through the production company he ran with their two sons (Corymore Productions).
    Angela temporarily retired from acting to take care of him in the last two years of his life (it took doing the family movie 'Nanny McPhee' - two years after his death - for her to overcome her depression over the loss).
