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).(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Stars).
