Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Strapping, stolid leading man of the postwar years. Lund enjoyed several good opportunities opposite Marlene Dietrich ("A Foreign Affair" 1948), Betty Hutton ("The Perils of Pauline" 1947) and Barbara Stanwyck ("The File on Thelma Jordan" 1949), but never displayed the magnetism needed to either catch the public's eye or match his more fiery costars. Before long he was playing the stooge fiance who loses Grace Kelly, first to Frank Sinatra and later to Bing Crosby, in the mediocre remake of "The Philadelphia Story," "High Society" (1956). Lund retired from acting in the early 1960s.
