    (July 23, 1912-July 8, 1979)
    Appeared in the films ‘Kipps' (1941), ‘In Which We Serve' (1942), ‘Piccadilly Incident' (1946), ‘Spring in Park Lane' (1948), ‘May in Mayfair' (1949), ‘Under Capricorn' (1949), ‘Stage Fright' (1950), ‘Torch Song' (1953), ‘The Glass Slipper' (1955), ‘The World of Suzie Wong' (1960) and ‘Waterloo' (1970)
    Married actresses Elizabeth Taylor (1952-57) and Margaret Leighton (1964-76)
    Died from a fall down a flight of stairs during an epileptic seizure
    He was twice Elizabeth Taylor's age when they married.
    Asked if he had the formula for a successful marriage, he replied, ‘I haven't a bloody clue.'
    During Taylor's fifth (and sixth) marriage to Richard Burton, he hung out as part of their entourage.
    He said, ‘I went to Hollywood for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, married Elizabeth Taylor and watched my career turn to ashes.'
    Hedda Hopper tried to dissuade Taylor from marrying him by publicly insinuating that he was homosexual. He successfully sued for libel.
    Taylor proposed to him, and dominated the planning of the wedding so thoroughly that Kitty Kelley observed, ‘She wore a dove grey suit. He wore a look of surprise.'
    Asked how he planned to spend the honeymoon with Taylor, he quipped, ‘Together.'
    He apparently learned the formula for a successful marriage: he was married to Margaret Leighton until her death.
