Phillip Terry Facts
Was introduced to Joan Crawford in May of 1942 by drama critic Harry Mines. The couple wed six weeks later on July 21, 1942. He became the stepfather of Christina Crawford. The couple later adopted a son, Phillip Terry, Jr. Upon their divorce in 1946, Phillip Sr. waived his rights as father to Phillip, Jr., only on the condition a trust would be be set up for the boy to pay for his college education. Joan legally changed the boy's name to Christopher.

During WWII, he became a licensed pilot and owned a small plane. He could not enlist in the service because of of his extreme near-sightedness and due to knee injuries suffered in an oil field accident when he was younger. He did, however, take a job at an aircraft factory.

While training at London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, he picked up a strong British accent. Deemed "too British" after being signed by MGM, he trained with vocal coaches and drama teachers in order to lose the accent.
