MINI BIO:

Ronald Reagan was a loyal 'servant' to Warner Brothers for 13 years playing easy-going types, without quite getting into the mainstream of their films. When his features hardened with middle age, he played tough westerns for a while before going into politics, becoming Governor of California from 1966 to 1973. He was elected President of the United States in 1980, and re-elected for a second term in 1984. He was married to actress Jane Wyman from 1940 to 1948 and to Nancy Davis from then onwards (first and second wives).

When Reagan's long-time friend and first Hollywood agent, studio mogul Lew Wasserman, died on 3 June 2002, AP reported that their friendship was the subject of a controversial book called "Dark Victory: Ronald Reagan, MCA and the Mob" (1988). The book reviewed the federal investgation into the Reagan- Wasserman relationship and charges that alleged payoffs were made in the 1950s by Wasserman's mammoth MCA agency to Reagan and some of his fellow officers of the Screen Actors Guild. Ultimately, Reagan was cleared in the inquiry.

Reagan and his wife Nancy were close friends of Rock Hudson, whose death in 1985 spurred the President to provide funds for AIDS research.
