BIRTH NAME: Paul Manfred Glaser
PROFESSIONALLY KNOWN AS: Paul Michael Glaser from 1974.
(His early credited appearances were under the name of Paul M. Glaser, Paul Manfred and Michael Glaser)

BORN: March 25, 1943 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, US
Born into an artistic and creative family Glaser is the youngest of 3 children (he has 2 older sisters). Through his parents interests he was inspired by the theatre, museums, gallery art and classical music. Growing up he enjoyed drawing and painting and was encouraged by his parents to explore his creative talents. This led to his involvement in theatre production and acting.

EDUCATION: Privately educated as a day pupil.
(pre-kindergarten to twelfth grade)Browne & Nichols School, Cambridge, Massachusetts until 1961 when he transferred to The Cambridge School of Weston, Massachusetts from where he graduated in the same year
Tulane University in New Orleans graduated with a BA in Theatre and English
School of Fine Arts at Boston University graduating in 1967 with a Masters Degree in Theatre Arts.
While at university, in 1964, he flew out to the UK to take additional drama classes at LAMDA and RADA. He also visited a number of English theatres, Stratford among them, to experience performances by some of the top English actors including Sir Laurence Olivier and Dame Peggy Ashcroft

CAREER . . .
THEATRE DEBUT: "Amahl and the Night Visitors" circa 1957 when he was 14. Presumably an amateur school production. (I could find no extra details)
After University he acted in 'summer stock' before moving to New York to start his professional career.
PROFESSIONAL DEBUT: December 26 1967-February 11 1968 in "Hamlet" as a guard (credited as Paul M. Glaser) at the Anspacher Theater, New York Shakespeare Festival Public Theatre, 425 Lafyette Street, New York. The production was staged by producer and director Joseph Papp and this Off-Broadway avant-garde version (with incidental rock music) starred Martin Sheen as 'Hamlet' and Ralph Waite as 'Claudius' (later in the TV series "The Waltons" as 'John Snr').
Not to be confused with the rock musical "Rockabye Hamlet" cited by many sites . . . it didn't premiere until Dec 1973.
After this he appeared in a number of Off-Broadway and Broadway productions . . . he made his Broadway debut at the Royale Theatre, New York. in "The Man in the Glass Booth" starring Donald Pleasance. He was one of the original cast as 'Steiger' opening on Sep 26, 1968 and the following year was in the original Broadway cast of " Butterflies Are Free" as Ralph Austin (opening Oct 21, 1969).
A frequent visitor to the UK he has appeared on stage in pantomimes
and in 2013 he appeared again in "Fiddler on the Roof" but this time in the lead role as 'Tevye', the role performed by Topol in the 1971 film version (Glaser's film debut). The UK stage production embarked on a national tour opening on 5 Sep 2013 in Southampton before eventually closing in Eastbourne on 10 May 2014 having spent up to a week in 24 theatres around the UK

TV CAREER . . .
DEBUT: 11 December 1967 as 'Noel' in the in the TV drama series "The Doctors" (1963–1982). Although he played the character up to June 1968 in 7 episodes he was not given an acting credit. Taking a brief break from TV to make his first films he returned in the early 1970s making guest appearances in already established series including "Cannon", "The Streets of San Francisco", "The Waltons", "Kojak" and "The Rockford Files".
BREAKTHROUGH: 30 April 1975 "Starsky and Hutch" the US police series in which he starred as 'Det. Dave Starsky' alongside David Soul as 'Det. Hutch Hutchinson'. The series ran from 1975 to 1979 and made the 2 actors worldwide stars. In 1977 Glaser made his directorial debut on the series and went on to direct several other episodes of the series run including the series finale in 1979. He continues to work on TV making guest appearances in both series and 'made for TV' films and the occasional recurring character but since 2010 has concentrated more on directing including episodes of "Miami Vice" (the original 1980s series), "Third Watch" and "Las Vegas".

FILM CAREER . . .
DEBUT: 3 November 1971 "Fiddler on the Roof". Credited as Michael Glaser he played 'Perchik' in this musical starring Topol.
For his next film he reprised the role he'd previously played on Broadway, 'Ralph' in the film adaptation of "Butterflies Are Free" (1972) starring Goldie Hawn. His other acting credits in feature films are "Phobia" (1980), "F-Stops" (2001) and "Live!" (2007)
He has also directed several films including "The Running Man" (1987) starring Arnold Schwarzenegger but his TV work dominates his career.

MARRIAGE . . .
He married Elizabeth (née Meyer) on August 24 1980 and had 3 children. They remained together until her death on December 3 1994.

In 1996 he married Tracy Barone and they had 1 child. The couple divorced in 2007.


THE CHAIN LINK to Cher . . . MEGO DOLLS
In May 1976 the toy company, Mego, launched a launched a 12 ¼" celebrity doll line to compete directly with Mattel's "Barbie". The first dolls produced were Sonny and Cher. The Cher doll became the highest selling doll of 1976 and they went on to produce other versions of Cher in 1977 and 1978. The same year they produced a 12 ¼" version of Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul with several other celebrities. If you happen to have on they can sell for good money on E-Bay.
The company had already been producing smaller 8" action figures from TV series including Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul as "Starsky and Hutch" in 1974 . . . don't worry "Huggy Bear" wasn't left out . . . ;-)
In 1976

So sorry @peasterberg . . . I must have had a lapse of concentration . . . it looks like I forgot to tag harmony's name. I have put your name back on the list. I'm so pleased that you are enjoying the game and making friends . . . ;-)

Congratulations, Barbara! :)))

peasterberg

Thank you for putting me on! (Your list!)

Yes, I knew that my "Starsky" answer was late and unacceptable, since it is a character name, not the actor's name. I just wanted to play off Barbara's answer, as Starsky's the only character I remember him play.

I really enjoy your quizzes!

gogogo

Well done, Barbara - congratulations!! :-))

Congratulations officially Barbara! :)

Thanks for the puzzles and the tag, Trouble. I do wish to ask you to remove my tag, however. Thanks!

Trouble_and_Frog

Hi everyone . . . back to normal . . . we have a winner! Well done Barbara . . . ;-)
lol Donna . . . at least the stretched nose in the early morphs managed to foil you. Thank you for finding a photo link and for your commiserations . . . ;-)

Hi @peasterberg . . . welcome to my little game. Unfortunately your answer came in too late as someone had already given the right answer. I wouldn't have been able to accept the 'character' name of 'Starsky' as the role has been played by more than one actor . . . in this case Ben Stiller in the 2004 film version. I do hope this is the first of many visits from you . . . ;-)
I have taken the liberty of putting your name on my 'tag list' so that you will receive notifications whenever I post a game RESULT. If you do not want to receive these please let me know so that I can remove it.
