Peter Shaw, born Peter Pullen, (24 June 1918 - 29 January 2003) was an actor/producer and the longtime husband of actress Angela Lansbury. Born in Reading, England, he began his career in front of the screen following World War II, and later found success as a studio executive at MGM. Shaw served in the British army during the second World War. He was signed to an MGM contract by the Charles Feldman Agency in the late '40s. MGM Studios was where the handsome actor met his future wife, Angela Lansbury, and after marrying the actress on 12 August 1949; Shaw apprenticed with agent Paul Small, leading to an executive position at the studio and later a career with the William Morris Agency, where he represented such luminaries as Katharine Hepburn and Robert Mitchum. Returning to MGM as head of production in 1964 and then re-joining the William Morris Agency as an international business manager, Shaw launched Corymore Productions in 1987, and it was at Universal Studios that he and his two sons produced Lansbury's Murder, She Wrote, in addition to numerous other made-for-television features. Plagued by failing health in his later years, Peter Shaw died of heart failure in his Los Angeles home in January 2003. He was 84. (bio by: Butterfly Rose)
