Bobby Darin


American actor, singer and recording artist, best remembered for his song "Mack The Knife" that held the No. 1 slot on Billboard's pop singles chart for nine weeks. His career ranged from Sinatra-like crooning through folk protest. He was an Oscar nominee for his role in "Captain Newman, M.D." "That Funny Feeling" was one of three comedies he played with his wife, Sandra Dee.

Their son Dodd published "Dream Lovers" in 1994 in which he related that his dad was ruthless and selfish, a pampered child. Darin had been born out-of-wedlock to 17-year-old Nina Cassotto whose mother Polly, a retired showgirl, claimed the boy as hers. He was 32 years old before he learned the truth and never did know his dad's name.

He had four bouts of rheumatic fever between 8-13. At 24, he met Sandra Dee, 16, and they were married for seven years.

Darin had his own weekly variety show on NBC in the 1972-73 season. His son accepted the award for him when he was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Fame on 1/17/1990.

Darin died after heart surgery 12/20/1973 at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA. He was 37 years old.
