Tuesday Talent II: Farley Granger, Goodnight Sweet Prince

In the midst of switching his focus from movies to theater and television, Mr. Granger also made the film he would later say he was most proud of: “Senso” (1954), by the Italian director Luchino Visconti, in which Mr. Granger played an Austrian military officer. “Working with Visconti was a unique thing,” he recalled, “and that was a difficult role.” …But Mr. Granger, who described himself as bisexual, also had relationships with Leonard Bernstein and Arthur Laurents. His longtime partner was Robert Calhoun, whom he met while doing a National Repertory Theater tour of which Mr. Calhoun was production manager. He died in 2008. Asked about his preferences in the 2007 Times interview, Mr. Granger said, “I’ve lived the greater part of my life with a man, so obviously that’s the most satisfying to me.”

Go here for his obituary in The New York Times.

A truly unique and very beautiful man ...rest in peace, Dear Heart.
