    (July 10, 1926- )
    Born in Bellington, Vermont
    Birth name is Carleton Upham Carpenter Jr.
    Acted in 'Father of the Bride,' 'Summer Stock,' 'Vengeance Valley,' and 'Take the High Ground!'
    Famous for his teaming with Debbie Reynolds in the films 'Three Little Words' and 'Two Weeks with Love' (both 1950)
    He had a wiry frame and scarecrow-like build - kind of like Ray Bolger from the Wizard of Oz.
    He was leading man in only two films: 'Fearless Fagan' and 'Sky Full of Moon.'
    He left Hollywood after barely three years - probably after it became clear he didn't have a future as the next Brando.
    His last major film role was in a post-Stonewall gay-ploitation Christmas flick titled 'Some of My Best Friends Are...' (he portrayed the character 'Miss Untouchable').
    He began his career in entertainment as a magician.
    He served as a Seabee in the U.S. Navy during World War II.
    His teaming with Debbie Reynolds brought her to the public's attention (and not - contrary to popular belief - 'Singin in the Rain' - which was released two years later).
    His duet of 'Aba Daba Honeymoon' with Reynolds from 'Two Weeks With Love,' was the first soundtrack recording to become a No. 1 gold record.
    He made guest appearances on 'The Rifleman' and 'Shirley Temple's Storybook' (as Tom Tom the Piper's Son).
    He enjoyed success as a songwriter following his exit from films, composing material for Marlene Dietrich and Debbie Reynolds.
    He was a successful writer of mystery novels in the 1970s through the 1980s.
