Cincinnati, OH born actor, whose father and great-grandfather were also actors of the same name. This Ty Power's career took off after he shed the "Junior" from his name and he began his star run at Twentieth Century-Fox in Lloyds of London (1936). Power's stardom grew as a matinee idol and sometimes swashbuckler in early releases such as In Old Chicago (1938), The Mark of Zorro (1940), Blood and Sand (1941), Son of Fury: The Story of Benjamin Blake (1942), and The Black Swan (1942). Power served in the Marines during World War II, and then returned to Hollywood, often in in more complicated and dramatic roles such as The Razor's Edge (1946), Nightmare Alley (1947), The Long Gray Line (1955), The Eddy Duchin Story (1956), and Witness for the Prosecution (1957). A personal favorite was filmed in England near the end of Power's life, Abandon Ship aka Seven Waves Away (1957). Power died on the set of Solomon and Sheba (1959); his scenes were removed from the film and he was replaced by Yul Brynner.
