As a singer in the '50s Eddie Fisher became a teen idol, starring in his own radio and TV shows; he also appeared in three films. His greatest notoriety stems from his romantic life: in 1959 he divorced actress Debbie Reynolds to marry actress Elizabeth Taylor, and in 1964 Taylor left him to marry her Cleopatra co-star, Richard Burton. Later he married and divorced actress/singer Connie Stevens. Fisher starred in two films, Bundle of Joy (1956) with Reynolds, and Butterfield 8 (1960) with Taylor. He was the father of actress and novelist Carrie Fisher. In 1981 Eddie Fisher authored his autobiography, Eddie: My Life, My Loves.
