Frank Sinatra, Rock Hudson and Gary Cooper's doctor has died, aged 93. Rexford Kennamer, who was dubbed the Physician to the Stars, diagnosed Cooper's terminal cancer and famously accompanied Elizabeth Taylor to the funeral of her husband Mike Todd. He passed away at the Alabama home of his nephew last week (28Sep13), according to Reuters. An internist and cardiologist in Beverly Hills, he became one of Taylor's close friends after meeting her on the set of 1944's National Velvet, when he was a contract doctor for the studio. Kennamer was offered lucrative book deals to reveal all about his famous clients but he turned them all down.
