Jeff Chandler Facts
His former lover Esther Williams, in her tell-all 1999 biography, put Chandler back in the headlines after asserting that he was a cross-dresser. She told him, "Jeff, you're too big for polka dots." Esther later admitted privately that this had no basis in fact, and was made up simply to bolster interest in the book.

He was mentioned as the possible lead for the television police drama "The Asphalt Jungle" when that show was in development in 1960.

He was very proud of his Jewish heritage.
