Robert Wagner Profile

A fixture in films and television for half a century, Robert Wagner has progressed from teen idol to suave leading man to charming character actor still active in both feature films and such TV shows as Hope and Faith and Boston Legal. During his early years in Hollywood, Wagner was befriended and helped along his way by some of the biggest names in films, several of whom he salutes during his stint as TCM's Guest Programmer alongside host Robert Osborne.

Spencer Tracy, the star of Bad Day at Black Rock (1955), was "like a father to me - he made the difference in my career." Another mentor, Barbara Stanwyck, is remembered by Wagner as "a special, special person in my life" and represented by Ball of Fire (1941) because she's "just so adorable in that movie." As a youngster Wagner worked as a caddie at a golf club whose clients included such role models and future friends as Cary Grant (Gunga Din, 1939) and Clark Gable (Honky Tonk, 1941).
