Farley Granger was an American actor who found success through his collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock.

In the post-World War II era, Granger swiftly rose to the top ranks of young leading men. Slim and handsome, he possessed a sensitivity that could suggest a dark side to his characters as well as their vulnerability. He starred in "Strangers on a Train" (1951), widely regarded as one of Alfred Hitchcock's greatest films, as well as Nicholas Ray's noir masterpiece "They Live by Night" (1949).

In 2007, the veteran actor spent some time talking about his colorful past and getting good notices for his memoir, "Include Me Out: My Life From Goldwyn to Broadway," which he co-wrote with his companion of four decades, Robert Calhoun, who died in 2008.

Granger died at his Manhattan home at the age of 85.
