About George Peppard
George Peppard was a Hollywood icon, known for his rugged good looks and charismatic presence on screen. Born on October 1, 1928, in Detroit, Michigan, Peppard grew up in a troubled household, with an alcoholic father and a mother who suffered from mental illness. Despite these challenges, he found solace in acting and pursued his passion with determination.
Peppard's breakthrough role came in 1959, when he starred in the classic film "The Carpetbaggers." He went on to star in a string of successful movies, including "Breakfast at Tiffany's," "How the West Was Won," and "The Blue Max." But it was his role as the leader of a group of World War II prisoners in "The Great Escape" that cemented his status as a Hollywood legend.
Off screen, Peppard was known for his hard-partying lifestyle and tumultuous relationships. He was married five times and struggled with alcoholism for much of his life. Despite these challenges, he remained a beloved figure in Hollywood, known for his wit, charm, and talent.
Peppard passed away on May 8, 1994, at the age of 65. His legacy lives on through his iconic performances and the impact he had on the film industry. As Rolling Stone once wrote, "George Peppard was a true Hollywood original, a larger-than-life figure who left an indelible mark on the world of cinema."
