José Ferrer


Puerto Rican-American actor, director and producer.

His family moved to the U.S. in childhood. At Princeton, he discovered drama and made his Broadway debut in 1935, with a screen debut in "Joan of Arc," 1948. A character actor with a wide range, he became a solid star with versatile performances that were increasingly outstanding. In 1947 he won the first of his five Tony awards and in 1950 an Oscar for his role as Cyrano de Bergerac, 1950. His films include "Moulin Rouge," 1952 and "The Caine Mutiny."

Ferrer directed a number of films in the '50s and '60s.

Married four times; his first wife was actress Uta Hagan and second, singer Rosemary Clooney, 1953-1967, with whom he had five kids.

Ferrer died of colon cancer in Coral Gables, Florida on 26 January 1992 at the age of 80.
