Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Actor Frank Latimore debuted on Broadway costarring in the 1942 comedy "Janie," which ran for more than a year and garnered the young actor the favorable attention of audiences and the Hollywood studios. Venturing out to Los Angeles, he signed a contract with 20th-Century Fox, and joined the studio's stable of second-tier leading men who romanced the lot's leading ladies, like Jeanne Crain in the Otto Preminger-directed comedy "In the Meantime, Darling" or June Haver in the Betty Grable musical "The Dolly Sisters." Well-received supporting performances in the Oscar-winning 1946 drama "The Razor's Edge" and the spy thriller "13 Rue Madeleine" did little to shore up Latimore's star power, however, and he soon decamped to postwar Europe. Appearing primarily in Italian and Spanish B-pictures throughout the '50s and '60s, he occasionally scored with small roles in quality movies like the classic French thriller "Purple Noon." He returned to Hollywood roles with brief, shining performances in multiple Oscar-winners "Patton" and "All the President's Men." In 1975, Latimore, born into a blue-blooded Connecticut family, joined the cast of the ABC soap opera "Ryan's Hope," creating perhaps his best-known role...
