  • Notes 
    • A boyishly handsome band, nightclub and hotel singer, Eddie Fisher was discovered by Eddie Cantor in 1949 and went on to become an idol of bobbysoxers and a recording personality of the 1950s. A pre-rock and roll crooner, Fisher performed his many hit songs including "Oh, My Papa" and "Wish You Were Here" on his two TV variety shows, the 15-minute "Coke Time With Eddie Fisher" (NBC, 1953-57) and the hour-long variety show, "The Eddie Fisher Show" (NBC, 1957-59). Fisher and first wife Debbie Reynolds personified wholesome young newlyweds in the fan magazines of the 50s and in the film "Bundle of Joy" (1956), until he won tabloid notoriety by divorcing her to wed the recently widowed Elizabeth Taylor in 1959. A Las Vegas headliner in the 1960s and 70s, Fisher chronicled his self-destructive bouts with gambling and drugs in his 1981 autobiography "Eddie: My Life, My Loves".
