Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

An extremely handsome young Columbia contract player of the 1950s, California native Robert Francis had appeared in productions at the famed Pasadena Playhouse prior to making his much-heralded screen debut as Ensign Keith in The Caine Mutiny (1954). He was reunited with co-star May Wynn in The Bamboo Prison (1954) and played the male ingenue once again in John Ford's The Long Gray Line (1955). Sadly, a most promising career was cut tragically short when Francis perished in a plane crash.
