Peter Lawford Leben & Werk VideoPeter Lawford Mysteries \u0026 Scandals
In her autobiography "'Tis Herself", Maureen O'Hara wrote that Lawford and Richard Boone were arrested in a gay brothel "full of beautiful boys", while filming Kangaroo in Australia, but the studio managed to avoid this being reported by the press.
During his salad days as a young actor, Lawford worked as an usher at the Westwood Village Theatre in Los Angeles. Years later, many of his films would premiere there.
He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on February 8, He was cremated after death and his ashes were scattered in the Pacific Ocean.
He was put under contract at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, when it was under the leadership of Louis B. He would later buy Mayer's former Hollywood mansion.
In the tell-all Tinsel Town "drama" The Oscar , Lawford had a bit part as a washed up actor now forced to work as the maitre'd at a Hollywood restaurant.
Given the real-life Lawford's career downturn in the wake of his being "banished from the Rat Pack" by Frank Sinatra , his taking such a minor role was seen by many people in the industry as a prime example of "type casting".
During Peter Lawford's appearance on a episode of the television program "Password" he announced that he was producing a television series based upon important days in the presidency of John F.
The series apparently was never produced. Spent his early years travelling with his family until the war years froze their funds.
In Hollywood his first role in the film 'Mrs. Miniver' put him in demand. Appeared in three films nominated for Best Picture Oscar: Mrs.
Miniver , Random Harvest and The Longest Day , the first one of these won the category. You were wrapped in cotton wool.
Lawford was a cadet in Thunder Birds: Soldiers of the Air and Junior Army starring Bartholomew , a soldier in Random Harvest , Immortal Sergeant , and London Blackout Murders directed by George Sherman , and a navigator in Assignment in Brittany He had a billed part in The Purple V At MGM he was a student in Above Suspicion , a soldier in Pilot 5 , a naval commander in The Sky's the Limit with Fred Astaire , and an Australian in The Man from Down Under He had a minor role at Republic's Someone to Remember and The West Side Kid , the latter directed by Sherman.
Lawford played a soldier in Sahara and sailors in Sherlock Holmes Faces Death and Corvette K He was a Frenchman in Paris After Dark and Flesh and Fantasy , and was a student in MGM's Girl Crazy and The Adventures of Mark Twain Lawford's career stepped up a notch when signed to a long-term contract to MGM in June The studio signed him with a specific role in mind - The White Cliffs of Dover , in which he played a young soldier during the Second World War.
The film was very popular. Lawford had a small role in The Canterville Ghost and Mrs. Parkington , playing a suitor of Greer Garson.
MGM gave him another important role in The Picture of Dorian Gray Lawford's first leading role came in Son of Lassie , a big hit.
Lawford was put in a Kathryn Grayson - June Allyson musical, Two Sisters from Boston which was very popular. Ernst Lubitsch used him at Fox in Cluny Brown where he was billed after Charles Boyer and Jennifer Jones.
He won a Modern Screen magazine readers' poll as the most popular actor in Hollywood of His fan mail jumped to thousands of letters a week.
Lawford made My Brother Talks to Horses with Jackie Butch Jenkins , an early work of Fred Zinnemann which was a big flop. He was reunited with Grayson in It Happened in Brooklyn , which also starred Frank Sinatra.
Lawford received rave reviews for his work in the film,  while Sinatra's were lukewarm. Lawford later admitted that the most terrifying experience of his career was the first musical number he performed in the musical Good News , the film he starred in alongside Allyson.
Using an American accent for his role, he won acclaim as a performer. He was Esther Williams ' leading man in On an Island with You and supported Fred Astaire and Judy Garland in Easter Parade , a huge hit, and Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon in Julia Misbehaves , also popular.
He played Laurie in MGM's version of Little Women alongside Allyson and Elizabeth Taylor. He was billed beneath Pidgeon and Ethel Barrymore in the anti-Communist The Red Danube and was one of Deborah Kerr 's leading men in Please Believe Me He was Jane Powell 's love interest in Royal Wedding with Fred Astaire and co-starred with Janet Leigh in Just This Once , both popular.
Back at MGM he was top billed in some lower budgeted films: You for Me , a comedy, The Hour of 13 , a thriller and Rogue's March , a war film.
Lawford's first film after Metro released him and several other players from their contracts was the comedy It Should Happen to You , wherein he starred alongside Judy Holliday and Jack Lemmon.
He focused on television, guest starring on shows like General Electric Theater , Schlitz Playhouse , and The Ford Television Theatre.
In , Lawford married Patricia Kennedy, sister of Senator John F. Lawford would become an enthusiastic fund raiser for the Senator. Lawford had a regular role on a TV sitcom, Dear Phoebe —55 but the show only ran 32 episodes.

Lawford had another starring role on a TV series, The Thin Man —59 with Phyllis Kirk , an NBC series from MGM based on the novel by Dashiell Hammett.
It was more successful running for 72 episodes. In , Sinatra invited Lawford to join the " Rat Pack " and also got him a role in Never So Few Peter Lawford and Sinatra appeared in Oceans 11 Lawford had been first told of the basic story of the film by director Gilbert Kay, who heard the idea from a gas station attendant.
Lawford eventually bought the rights in , imagining William Holden in the lead. Lawford played a British soldier in the acclaimed Israeli-set drama Exodus for Otto Preminger and had a cameo in Pepe In , he became an American citizen and assisted on his brother-in-law's successful presidential election.
He did a TV remake of The Farmer's Daughter with Lee Remick and was reunited with the Rat Pack in Sergeants 3 British seemed to mean gay to her.
Granny was a real nut-job. R61 In fairness, Vidal Sassoon did come across as pretty damn gay. I know he was a devoted husband and father, but I could see why she thought that.
The more info on Marilyn the better. It would be refreshing to know more about her and debunk some of the things people believe to be true about her because of her image as a sex symbol.
Reading the SMASH threads it's clear people still hold views of her that are just not correct at all. It is a good thing to have more of the real person Marilyn out there.
I hope it is found to be truly written from her diaries. I wish 'My Week With Marilyn' were a George Lucas film so he could just keep adding new footage as pertinent information comes to light.
I want to hear more about Tom Drake throwing his life away over Lawford. Where did those posters HEAR that?
Wasn't there a golden age blind item about a frequent foursome of Keenan and Evie Wynn, Lawford, and Van Johnson? Sinatra was a notorious homophobe, and Peter Lawford made his skin crawl.
I think Frank tolerated Gay men who were out. He didn't treat them as equals, but then he didn't treat anyone as an equal.
But he knew Lawford was a closet case and he had nothing but contempt for him. Frank was a violent, promiscuous man who abused women and men, but he was not into kinky and Peter was.
Peter was also into drugs. Frank was a boozer, but no drugs. He generally felt like Lawford was a weak man and Frank hated weak men. He bullied them.
Marilyn's radar was good. Her survival instincts were on target. Lawford was no friend. He was slime. Lawford was the kind of man who'd give a girl a date rape drug then allow disgraceful things to be done to her which he would then record for posterity and for blackmail.
He did have sex with women, but it was torturous for him. Amazing all the nonessential information you retain after reading celebrity biographies.
I always have felt like I would have liked Sinatra, as deeply flawed as he was, and I would NOT have liked Peter Lawford, as deeply flawed as HE was.
Isn't the Lawford bio by his last wife the book where Nancy Reagan's amazing head-giving skills finally came to credible light?
Marilyn's danger to the Kennedys was not that she might reveal state secrets she probably didn't know any, I agree , but any proper investigation of the very married brothers screwing just about every pretty woman they encountered would surely have brought down their political careers.
It would also have uncovered JFK's connection through Judith Campbell Exner to organized crime figure Sam Giancana. As for her death - it could ONLY have been suicide or murder.
It appears she was going to go public the next day about her love for Bobby Jack had hand-balled her to him a few months earlier , but she died that night.
How convenient. As for JFK and Marilyn Monroe It's not like he's fucking 8-year old boys. Different era, r That kind of thing could end a powerful man's career back then.
It didn't have to be 8 year old boys, just adultery. She was a huge mess. You'll never get me to believe it wasn't suicide. It's not like she hadn't tried before.
There is a really interesting book called 'Hollywood Warts 'n' All, published in R76 ,that names names right the way through it.
It is a collection of all the affairs, sexual preferences, cover-ups, killings, drunk drivers, pedophiles etc in Hollywood between and It covers everything movie by movie,alphabetically, commencing with 'A Beautiful Mind' and finishing with 'Zulu'.
I think you're all nuts. Peter Lawford wasn't gay. In fact, he was quite a womanizer. He had a torrid love affair with Judy Holliday which eventually broke up her marriage as well as other female lovers.
As far as Frank Sinatra and Peter Lawford. As much of a creep Sinatra was, do you think he would tolerate Lawford being in his inner circle of friends and costar of so many of his movies if he knew Lawford were gay?
I don't think so! But the answer to the question is so easy Ask Shirley MacLaine. She knew the ins and outs of the Rat Pack and of Hollywood.
If anyone can tell us definitely she could. Why was she going to go public? If she loved him, as you write, why would she want to destroy him?
Physically striking, he attracted sexual overtures from adults of both sexes by the time he was 9. His good looks got him parts in films in England, and later, after moving to Hollywood in with his alternately uncaring and overpossessive mother, he signed with MGM and launched his American film career.
Britischer Schauspieler Attraktiv, schlank, elegant, mit buschigen Augenbrauen und aristokratischem Auftreten, gehört der Brite Peter Lawford zu den Schauspielern, die mehr durch ihr Privatleben, als durch Filme in Erinnerung geblieben sind.
Als Vertragsschauspieler bei MGM verkörperte er Aristokraten und Militärs in Romanzen und Musicals, war in den 50er-Jahren im Fernsehen zu sehen und in den 60ern in Filmen mit den Freunden aus dem Rat Pack um Frank Sinatra , Sammy Davis Jr.
Privat war Lawford durch seine Heirat mit der Schwester von John F. Also interesting: that the quality of the writing of these comments gets worse and worse as the days pass, and even as several singular posts progress.
Then there are the comments with no punctuation or even capitalized first letters of sentences, so the entire multi-sentence post is presented as one annoying and frankly stupid, nonsensical sentence.
I wish that morons who cannot seem to correctly write anything, no matter how brief, in their likely-native language, would be confronted about and forced to examine their sheer stupidity once in a while.
Anonymous, thank you so much for your comments. Very enlightening. I guess unlike most of the people on this board, not all of us can be perfect, and not all of us can tolerate betrayal by friends and family.
It was a huge waste of a life of a charming and talented man, who certainly had a place in film and television.
Very, very sad, indeed. Home Historic Images January 18, On the surface, Peter Lawford lived a charmed life.

Vern Trotter December 21, at pm. NCJack June 16, at pm. Wriggles January 18, at am. I always thought that Lawford, along with his Rat Pack brethren, were all a bunch of jerks.
Nuff said. Charlottesville January 18, at pm. A Trad Confused January 18, at pm.
