Farley Granger

Granger has no grave, he was cremated and his ashes were given to his companion.

His longtime partner (since 1963), Robert Calhoun, collaborated with Farley on his 2007 memoir "Include Me Out: My Life from Goldwyn to Broadway".

In his book "Original Story By: A Memoir of Broadway and Hollywood," playwright and screenwriter Arthur Laurents detailed his live-in relationship with Farley Granger during the 1940s and '50s. Laurents and Granger were already romantically involved when Laurents wrote the screenplay for Rope, in which Granger co-starred.

On the audio commentary for They Live by Night (1949), he says that Alfred Hitchcock and Nicholas Ray were the best directors he ever worked with. In addition, his two favorite films of his own are Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train (1951) and Ray's They Live by Night (1949).

One of the last of Samuel Goldwyn's contract players.

Scored in short-lived comeback on Broadway in Ira Levin's "Deathtrap" in 1980.

Son of Farley Earle Granger and Eva H. Granger.
