About Georges Guétary

Singer, dancer and star of revues for more than 50 years, Georges Guétary was the son of Greek parents. He was sent by his father to Paris in 1934, ostensibly to extend his knowledge of commerce; however, once there he studied at the music school run by the distinguished violinist Jacques Thibaud and pianist Alfred Cordot. After World War II, he became an immensely popular recording artist, and appeared in a number of films during the '50s directed by Gilles Grangier. His Broadway debut came in ARMS AND THE GIRL and a high point was his star turn in AN AMERICAN IN PARIS. At the age of 80, he returned to the Bobino music hall in Paris for what would be his final concert.
