From 1950 to 1956, singer Eddie Fisher was arguably among the most popular entertainers in America. Blessed with matinee idol looks and a honeyed voice, he enjoyed over 15 Top Ten hits on the music charts, as well as favored-nation status among the public thanks to his marriage to actress Debbie Reynolds. Like Icarus, he plummeted from the uppermost ranks of stardom to persona non grata when he indulged in an affair with Elizabeth Taylor shortly after the death of her husband, producer Mike Todd. The resulting scandal was irrevocably linked to Fisher's career for the remainder of his life; by the time of his death in 2010, obituaries devoted more space to the details of the affair than to his music and acting careers. Fisher remained, even in death, one of the most harrowing cautionary tales about the price of fame in Hollywood.
