Who Was Robert Morse?
The actor appeared in nearly 100 theatres, television, and film productions during his nearly 60-year career, having first made his name in 1961 in a stage adaptation of Shepherd Mead’s best-selling book How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, for which he won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical. In 1990, he repeated the feat by winning the Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Play for his performance as Truman Capote in the play Tru.
It not only made him one of only four actors in history to win the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play or Musical, but it also garnered him an Emmy three years later when a live performance of the show was televised on television. As part of the ensemble cast, his performance as the eccentric creator of Mad Men’s ad firm catapulted him to international recognition, winning him five Emmy nods and a Screen Actors Guild award win.
After quietly dying after witnessing Neil Armstrong’s 1969 moon landing, he drew on his Broadway skills for a major musical number following his death, doing a song-and-dance routine to The Best Things in Life Are Free. Needless to say, Robert Morse was a great personality who will be dearly missed by many.
