MORE INFO ON RICHARD CHAMBERLAIN: Actor Richard Chamberlain was the leading TV heartthrob of the early 60s. As Dr. Kildare, the slim butter-haired hunk with the near-perfect Ivy-League good looks and charming demeanor became a huge celebrity and had the girls all fawning over him. Born George Richard Chamberlain in Beverly Hills on March 31, 1934, Richard excelled in track as a student, later developing an interest in acting while attending Pomona College. He lost an initial chance to sign with Paramount, who became interested in him right after graduation, as he was obliged to serve in Korea for 16 months. He headed for Hollywood soon after his discharge and within a couple of years had worked up a decent resumé with a number of visible guest spots. With(1961), however, he became an "overnight" sensation and huge pin-up fan. The attention was phenomenal. He advanced into the usual soapy film leads befitting such a star but(1963) withand(1965) oppositedid not score for him screen fame. He was considered a TV commodity only. More interested in a reputation as a serious actor than the trivial adulation of youthful fans, the charismatic actor turned his back on Hollywood and devoted himself to the stage. An important role in director's(1968) led Richard to England where he tested his mettle as a classical stage performer. His bravura performances as "Hamlet" (1969) and "Richard II" (1972) won over the not-so-easy-to-impress British audiences. With his new image in tact, Richard felt ready to return to America. He won renewed respect and a huge TV following once again, but this time as the "King of 80s Mini-movies". The monumental success of such challenging productions as(1983) and _"Shogun" (1980/II) (mini)_ put him right back on top. Richard even won modest box-office popularity with(1973) as Aramis, and(1974) as an arch villain, and earned small cult status for the Aussie film(1977). Enormously private, Richard moved to Hawaii quite some time ago and at age 69 decided to "come out" with a tell-all biography entitled "Shattered Love," in which he candidly discusses the anguish of hiding his homosexuality to protect his image throughout his long career.
