Eddie Fisher


Born - 10 August 1928, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
Died - 22 September 2010

Small, clear-voiced American singer with dark curly hair, immensely popular in the 1950s when he sold millions of records. Alas, his singing fame was subsequently overshadowed by his stormy headline marriages - the first three to equally diminutive star actresses - Debbie Reynolds, Elizabeth Taylor and Connie Stevens. He married twice more in later years. Despite his high profile, there were only three films: Bundle of Joy (1955, with Reynolds), BUtterfield 8 (1960, with Taylor) and a guest appearance in Nothing Lasts Forever in 1984. His scenes in his film debut, All About Eve (1950), hit the cutting-room floor before the movie was released. While with Reynolds, he fathered two girls, including the actress Carrie Fisher, one of his four daughters, the other two with Stevens. He died following complications from hip surgery - after spending his latter years in a wheelchair. The Eddie stood for Edwin.
