Byron Palmer


Born - 21 June 1920, Los Angeles, California, USA
Died - 30 September 2009

Very dark-haired and sleekly handsome, Palmer started his career as a radio announcer, then ran a Pacific radio station during World War Two, before a Broadway musical debut in 1948. He flourished briefly in films in the 1950s, but only his first - Tonight We Sing (1952) - and last - The Best Things in Life Are Free (1956) - films were musicals. He was also featured in Man in the Attic (1953) and Glory (1956) among others. The second and third of his three marriages were to actresses Ruth Hampton and Georgine Darcy, the latter famous for her 'Miss Torso' role in Hitchcock's Rear Window.
