Biography

A charismatic leading man in features and television for over three decades, actor George Peppard burst on the scene in the early 1960s as dashing, occasionally insouciant anti-her s in "Home from the Hill" (1960) and "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1960) before finding his greatest success as the cigar-chewing leader of TV's "The A-Team" (NBC, 1983-87). Though praised by critics for "How the West Was Won" (1962) and "The Blue Max" (1966), he never surpassed the promise of his performance as Audrey Hepburn's smitten admirer in "Tiffany's," and spent much of the next two decades in forgettable features while struggling with an intense alcohol problem. The detective drama "Banacek" (NBC, 1972-74) gave him a career boost, but his turn as the devil-may-care Hannibal Smith on "The A-Team" made him a star all over again. Cancer cut his revival short in 1994, but his body of work and his dramatic personal life and struggles kept his legacy alive after his passing.
