Peter Sydney Lawford (September 7, 1923December 24, 1984) was a British-born Hollywood actor, member of Frank Sinatra's "Rat Pack", and brother-in-law to President John F. Kennedy, perhaps more noted in later years for his off-screen activities as a celebrity than for his acting. In his earlier professional years (late 1930s through the 1950s) he had a strong presence in popular culture and starred in a number of highly acclaimed films.

Biography

Early life

Born in London, England, the son of British World War I hero Sir Sydney Turing Lawford and the former May Somerville Bunny, he spent his early childhood in France and began acting at a young age. May and Sir Sydney were not married when Peter was conceived and the resulting scandal caused the couple to flee England for America. Young Peter lived all over the world with his parents. Because of his family's travels, Peter was never formally educated. His lack of education was a sore subject and it contributed to his feelings of inadequacy later on as a member of the Kennedy family, and throughout his adult life. In America, Sir Sydney and Lady Lawford were treated like royalty among the well-to-do people in their new neighborhood of Palm Beach, Florida, and were always invited to events and social occasions. As a child he severely injured his arm, in his words: "attempting to run through a glass door.". Doctors were able to save the arm, but the injury continued to bother him throughout his life, and the arm was slightly deformed. The injury was considered damaging enough to keep him from entering World War II, but this turn of fate was probably the greatest boon to his career. At that time, Hollywood was infatuated with heroic Englishmen and as war movies were being churned out by the dozens and American actors volunteered or were drafted for the war, Lawford put his talents to work "stateside". London — containing the City of London — is the capital of the United Kingdom and of England and a major world city. With over seven million inhabitants (Londoners) in Greater London area, it is amongst the most densely populated areas in Western Europe. ...

Career

Prior to the war Lawford had gained a contract position with the MGM studios. Once he signed with MGM, his mother, May, insisted that studio head Louis B. Mayer pay her a salary as Peter's personal assistant. Mayer declined. Lady Lawford responded by claiming her son to be "homosexual" and that he needed to be "supervised". When Peter learned of his mother's actions their relationship was never the same.

Lawford's first major movie role was A Yank At Eton (1942). He played a snobbish bully opposite Mickey Rooney. The picture was a smash hit, and Lawford's performance was widely praised. He won even greater acclaim for his performance in The White Cliffs Of Dover (1944), in which he played a young soldier in World War II. MGM gave him another important role in The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945). Lawford also made Son Of Lassie (1945) and won a Modern Screen Magazine readers' poll as the most popular actor in Hollywood.

Lawford's busiest year as an actor was 1946, when two of his films opened within days of each other: Cluny Brown (1946) and Two Sisters From Boston (1946). With heartthrobs like Clark Gable and stalwarts like Jimmy Stewart off to war, Lawford was recognized as the romantic lead on the MGM lot. He appeared with Frank Sinatra for the first time in the musical It Happened in Brooklyn (1947). 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 (the Jitterbug). He also made his first comedy that same year: My Brother Talks To Horses (1947). It was in the musical Good News (1947) that he won his greatest acclaim as a performer, holding his own against other cast members with far more training in song and dance.

In the late 1950s he co-starred with Phyllis Kirk in a short-lived television series based on the Thin Man films of the 1930s. His first marriage was to Patricia Kennedy Lawford, sister of future President John F. Kennedy, in 1954. They had four children; actor Christopher, Sidney, Victoria, and Robin. Lawford became an American citizen in 1960, in time to vote for his brother-in-law in the presidential elections.

It has been said that in another time and place Lawford and Dandridge would have been married, but in the racially-intolerant 1950s this was not an option, and would have meant an end to both of their careers. Lawford introduced Marilyn Monroe as she stepped out to sing her famous Happy Birthday, Mr. President song in Madison Square Garden in May of 1962. He and brother-in-law Robert F. Kennedy are rumoured to have visited Monroe on the day she died (August 5, 1962), although this has never been confirmed. The Kennedy family distanced itself from Lawford as his antics increasingly proved embarrassing. Patricia Kennedy Lawford eventually divorced him in 1966 due to his alcoholism and infidelity.

Lawford was very close to Frank Sinatra for a number of years, appearing in several Rat Pack movies and stage acts. Sinatra, however, threatened him with bodily harm when he learned that Lawford had lunch with Ava Gardner, Sinatra's primary love interest at the time. Lawford's friends managed to convince Sinatra that nothing was going on between Gardner and Lawford, but Sinatra refused to speak with Lawford for a number of years. The two were later reconciled, but Sinatra ultimately broke off the friendship after Lawford refused to act as a go-between for Sinatra and President Kennedy after their association had become controversial (Sinatra's alleged mob ties, even if based more on rumor than fact, made White House image guardians unhappy). The end of the Lawford-Sinatra relationship came when the President made plans to stay at crooner Bing Crosby's house instead of Sinatra's during a visit to Los Angeles. Sinatra was especially incensed because Crosby was a Republican. Sinatra's feelings were such that once, when he learned Lawford was in the audience he was about to perform for, he refused to come out until Lawford and his wife were removed from the premises. Lawford and Sinatra never spoke again, though Lawford maintained a good friendship with Rat-Pack-pal Sammy Davis, Jr.. The two starred together in the 1968 film "Salt and Pepper."
