Biography | show moreshow less
Carleton Carpenter (b. 1926) was a professional musician and Broadway actor before signing a contract with MGM in 1949. He acted in both dramatic roles (Take the High Ground, 1953) and musicals. In Two Weeks with Love (1950), his duet of "Abba Dabba Honeymoon" with Debbie Reynolds stole the film from more senior stars and became a million-selling record. Carpenter has also composed songs performed by Billy Eckstine and others. Beginning in the 1960s, he shifted his focus from acting to write mystery novels and short stories. One of his books, Deadhead, was turned into a Broadway play.
