was an American actor best known as the fourth husband of singer and actress Judy Garland. He appeared in films such as Federico Fellini's 8½ and Eye of the Cat.
Fans of the cable TV show Mystery Science Theater 3000 may recall his performance in the film Girl in Gold Boots, in which he portrayed the greasy nightclub owner Leo McCabe.
Gerald Clarke, in his biography of Garland, Get Happy (2000) and in an interview about the book, reported that Herron had an affair with Tallulah Bankhead prior to meeting Garland. Biographies of Garland by David Shipman and Garland's daughter Lorna Luft -- Me and My Shadows: A Family Memoir (1998) -- categorically state that Herron was gay.
Garland put Herron to work as producer of her two London Palladium concerts with her daughter Liza Minnelli in 1964 as well as some personal appearances in Canada in 1965.
Aside from providing biographer Gerold Frank information for his biography titled Judy (1975), Herron remained silent on the topic of Garland. He continued acting, often appearing in summer stock productions.
Herron died of cancer in 1996, aged 67. (bio: Wikipedia)...
