Phil Baker's career spanned the bright lights from Broadway to television.
A leading figure of the 1920s and 1930s as an entertainer, Baker later became known as the man who started "The $64 Question" that eventually led to TV's "$64,000 Question" program.
He also starred in the 1938 movie "The Goldwyn Follies." [An earlier version of this bio, based on the 1963 obituary, incorrectly said Baker starred in "Ziegfeld Follies."] For many years he performed with comedian Jack Benny. Baker retired from show business in 1955 and moved to Denmark with his Danish-born third wife.
