ROBERT GOULET--- 1933-2007
Musical actor made splash in 'Camelot'
Award-winning entertainer enjoyed heyday in the '60s and 70s, making his mark with matinee-idol looks and a striking baritone
Before there was an American Idol, there was a Robert Goulet Idol. One of my all-time favorite singers with that great voice of his. Playing the role of Sir Lancelot in the "Camelot" production, his star rose rapidly and remained there.
Robert Goulet died yesterday at age 73 while awaiting a lung transplant.
Pianist Roger Williams said of him, "Robert Goulet was a monumental presence on the stage and had one of the great voices of all time, which often overshadowed his many other talents."
"With his dark hair, blue eyes, and magnificent baritone, Mr. Goulet was the personification of a Kennedy-era leading man. Judy Garland called him a living 8 by 10 glossy."
He won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1962. during the 1960s and early 1970s he had a string of hit albums.
One great talent.
