Leading Men: Robert Preston

June 8, 1918 ~ March 21, 1987                     Robert Preston

Robert Preston always had that broad shouldered, tousely hair thing going on, that needless to say just made all the girls swoon. Nevertheless he was married to the same woman for 46 years. *sigh*. A combination of theater, and film gained him more acclaim than most in Hollywood, and he deserved every bit of it. In Victor and Victoria he plays partner in crime to Julie Andrews. In The Music Man he plays the con-man with a heart. A favorite of Cecil B. DeMille’s, Preston also boasted 2 Tony Awards. Happy Birthday Robert!
