Jason Robards Jr.


American actor seen in some 170 films in a 40-year career, capped by Best Actor Oscars for "All the President's Men" and "Julia." His first love remained the stage, where he was bigger than life.

Growing up in Los Angeles, Robards' main interest was sports as a kid, and after high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy where he served through WW II, 1939-1945. Released, he studied acting in New York and gained his first critical review in May 1956, playing in "The Iceman Commeth."

Robards' private life was often difficult and stormy with three marriages and divorces, the third to Lauren Bacall. He lived with his fourth wife, Lois O'Connor, for more than 30 years. He had six children, Jason, Sarah and David from his first marriage, Sam with Bacall, and Shannon and Jake with Lois. For many years he was a serious drinker, having a terrible car accident in 1972 from which he had to have extensive surgery and face reconstruction.

After a long battle with cancer, Robards died on 26 December 2000, Bridgeport, CT. He was 78.
