American actor whose good looks won him the title of Hollywood's Most Eligible Batchelor in the '50s. A strict Catholic, he took his time to find a bride, and when he married Patricia Hardy, it was a lifetime contract.

After graduating from Stanford University with an MA in Dramatic Arts, he went into the army and spent WW II teaching judo to soldiers. In 1949 he got a small role in "The Damned Don't Cry," followed by "One Minute to Zero," 1950, "Hollywood Story," 1951 and "The Devil Makes Three," 1952. The quality of his roles increased year after year.

With "A Summer Place," he graduated to the next generation, playing Sandra Dee's father. In the '60s he made pictures in Europe, and in the '70s, phased out with a few minor roles.

Egan died of prostate cancer at the age of 65, 7/21/1987 at the St. Johns Medical Center at 4:20 PM in Santa Monica, CA. He had been admitted into the hospital 6/16/1987.
