GEORGE PEPPARD BIOGRAPHY & FILMOGRAPHY:

George Peppard's handsome looks and talent as an actor lead to his most well known and famous work, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961) with Audrey Hepburn.  This role lead to many film opportunities for him such as, "The Carpetbaggers" (1964) and "Blue Max" (1966).  For his character role in, "Blue Max" he took pilot lessons and even did many of his own stunts in the film. 
 
As his career entered into the 1970's, he continued to get film and television roles, however, due to his personal life battle with alcohol addiction, Hollywood did view him as a difficult person to work with.  George was however still cast in some 'B' rated films and in 1970 he played the lead character in the television series "Banacek".  He also played Sam Sheppard in, "The Sam Sheppard Murder Case" (1975) and followed this role with a role in "Damnation Alley" (1977).
 
By the late 70's, Peppard was not given the chance to take on any exciting and challenging roles so he decided to produce, direct and act in his own film, "Five Days From Home" (1979).    
 
A decent offer came his way in 1981 with a role on the television series, "Dynasty" portraying character, Blake Carrington.  However, only three weeks after the show was in production, he was fired due to perosnality clashes between him and producers of the show.
 
Again, another amazing opportunty came his way when he got the part for a new 1980's television show, "The A-Team" as Colonel John, the leader of a commando squad.  The show was a huge success running for a total of five seasons from 1983-1987.  It was this role that increased his popularity as an actor and made him known to the younger generation of television viewers.    

Peppard again received the chance to work on another television series titled, "Man Against the Nob".  This was suppose to be a series of movie features that were set to take place in the 1940's.  There were suppose to be a total of three films, but sadly Peppard passed away before the third series completed.

Peppard passed away on May 8th, 1994 in Los Angeles, California after being diagonosed in 1992 with Lung Cancer.  His remanis are buried in Northview Cemetery in Dearborn, Michigan. 

He battled his entire life to alcohol addicition and had many ups and downs not only in his professional career but his personal life as well.  He was married a total of five times, first to Helen davis from 1954-1964 and the couple had two children.  He then married Elizabeth Ashley in 1966 to 1972 and together they had one son.  Three years later he married again to, Sherry Boucher-Lytle in 1975, this marriage too ended in divorce in 1979.  His fourth vow was to Alexis Adams in 1984, but this marriage only survived two years.  His fifth and final marriage was in 1992 to Laura Taylor and they remanied together until his passing.  For his contribution to the Motion Picture Industry, Peppard was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
