Biography

His dramatic, commanding baritone made Robert Goulet a Broadway star, best-selling recording artist, and a television variety show staple during the 1960s, but his offbeat sense of humor and ability to poke fun of his own image kept him in the pop culture crosshairs for the rest of his life. He was forever associated with his star-making role in "Camelot" and for touring with legendary musicals like "South Pacific" and "Man of La Mancha," eventually spending the bulk of his time performing solo concerts as a Las Vegas mainstay. Younger audiences came to appreciate his helmet-like hair and cartoonishly slick delivery in a series of award-winning ESPN ads in the 1990s, and again in 2007 with an Emerald nuts ad aired during the Superbowl. In fact, the legend's appeal knew no boundaries even into his later years - when he continued to enjoy adulation from both old and young fans who saw the aging singer as an arbiter of cool.
