Tyrone Power

Biography

American third generation actor who had it all, looks, talent, charm, drama and romance, a top star for 22 years. He made a stage debut at seven and as a youth, was obsessed with the stage. At 16, already mature looking and handsome, he became acquainted with his Irish actor dad, who had left when Ty was a kid. His dad took him under his wing to teach him and help him get started. He was an overnight sensation in his first film in 1936, "Girl's Dormitory," followed by his first major role, "Lloyd's of London." He was given a raise to $350 a week. In the next three years, he skyrocketed, always appearing with panache, grace and good breeding.

Power fell in love with Annabella in 1938. They were married for four years, during when he made the swashbuckling films "The Mark of Zorro" and "Blood and Sand." On 1/01/1943 he reported to the Military for active duty. He served for three years in the Pacific where he loved his job of flying and the danger. Discharged in 1946, he made "The Razor's Edge" and "Nightmare Alley."

Power's many lovers included Judy Garland and Lana Turner. There were often rumors that he was bi-sexual. He and his pal, Caesar Romero, flew to Europe together, and there he met Linda Christian who became his second wife in January 1949, Rome; they had a daughter in 1950. After a second daughter in 1953, they separated.

His studio contract was up and after 40 films, Power wanted to make his own choices. His first independent film "Mississippi Gambler" made him a million dollars. He returned to his first love, the theater, in "John Brown's Body" for a year. In 1955, "The Eddie Duchen Story," with Victoria Shaw, was the top grossing movie of the year.

In May, 1958, Power made his third marriage, to Deborah Ann Monardo. He collapsed and died with a heart attack during filming on location in Spain 11/14/1958. Two months later Tyrone Power III was born, the son he'd always wanted.
