JACK CASSIDY (1927-1976) was featured in Broadway musicals for 30 years, winning a Best Featured Actor Tony for She Loves Me (1964), and he was nominated for three additional Tonys (two for Best Actor). A frequent guest on TV series, Cassidy starred in a few feature films, including The Eiger Sanction (1975) and W.C. Fields and Me (1976). He died in an apartment fire, apparently after he fell asleep while smoking. Cassidy, whose second wife (1956-1974) was actress Shirley Jones, was the father of youthful stars David, Shaun and Patrick Cassidy.
