Classical Musician, Actor. Born in LaFayette, Colorado, his ten year concert pianist career was interrupted when he entered the United States Army Air Force as an intelligence officer in World War II. At that time he was considered by many critics to be the the finest American born pianist of the 20th century, and he was still in his early 30s. Unfortunately, severe health problems forced him to give up touring, but he lived out his life becoming one of the most prominent teachers of famous concert pianists. Many of his students have won great acclaim. He appeared in the films, "I Take This Woman" (1940), "Balalaika" (1939) and "Sweethearts" (1938). (bio by: Joan Macon)
