Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Tony Martin's powerful tenor and smooth, romantic style earned him a place in America's heart as a much-loved entertainer. He entered the business as a musician in touring orchestras before landing plum roles in movie musicals from the 1930s to the 1950s, including "Sing, Baby, Sing" (1936), "Music in My Heart" (1940), "Ziegfield Girl" (1941) and "Casbah" (1948). Martin's crooning also swept the nation, with soulful renditions of ballads and pop standards like "When I'm With You" (1936) and the Oscar-nominated "For Every Man There's A Woman" (1948). His talent and undeniable charm wooed several silver screen goddesses throughout his career, from Ava Gardner to Rita Hayworth to Lana Turner, yet it was Martin's 60-year marriage to actress and dancer Cyd Charisse that remained a true Hollywood love story. With a multi-hyphenate career that spanned decades and withered an industry obsessed with youth, Martin endured as one of the most accomplished and stylish vocalists of his era.
