  • Philip Terry labored away as an oil-rig worker until enrolling at Stanford University, where the 6'1" San Franciscan distinguished himself on the football field. After college, Terry travelled to London to study acting, assuming that a British accent would automatically assure him good roles upon his return to America (it didn't). A nominal movie leading man at RKO and Paramount in the early 1940s, Terry managed to pick up a few good notices for his star turn in the 1941 western The Parson of Panamint. The following year, Terry became the third husband of superstar Joan Crawford (he'd been a bit player in Crawford's 1937 vehicle Mannequin, but was not formally introduced to the actress until four years later). A competent but bland screen presence, Terry tended to be overshadowed by his world-famous spouse. Though all reports indicate that the marriage was a happy one, Terry eventually chafed at being Mr. Joan Crawford, and in 1946 the couple was amicably divorced. In films until 1966, Philip Terry is best remembered for his portrayal of Wick Birman, the straight-arrow brother of alcoholic Ray Milland in The Lost Weekend (1945).
