Born: September 13, 1916
So much has been written about Dick Haymes, unfortunately everyone always ends their sentences with, it’s a shame, his personal life was such a mess.
You could say the same thing about most celebrities, however for some reason people tend to let Dick’s private life affect the fact that he was the consummate performer. He rarely allowed his problems to reach an audience, perhaps that is why he was so hard on himself; he never wanted to disappoint his fans with anything less than perfection. Conceivably, this maybe one of the reasons that he chose to leave the United States for Europe in the early 1960s....
