Biography | show moreshow less
Tony Martin (1913-2012), a popular crooner of the 1940s and 1950s, made his first hit record in 1938, "Now It Can Be Told". After serving in the Navy in WWII, Martin made a brief but fairly successful stint on Mercury in 1946-47 that helped get things going again, after which he moved to RCA and enjoyed many pop hits over the next decade. He has 20 years of starring film roles to his credit, the last being Let's Be Happy (1957) He also got a lot of work in radio and television, and performed with considerable success on the cabaret circuit with dancer-actress Cyd Charisse, his wife of sixty years until her death in 2008. Martin is the last of the old musical comedy stars still performing.
