Cesar Julio Romero Jr. (15 February 1907, New York City – 1 January 1994, Santa Monica), American actor, singer, dancer. The son of Cuban parents, he was active in film, radio, and television for almost 60 years. Never married, never seriously linked to any woman, but the constant public escort to many of Hollywood's great female stars; lived almost continually with various members of his family - especially his sister - his entire life; nearly inseparable from his BFF, the promiscuous and notoriously bisexual Tyrone Power; make you own conclusions. One of Hollywood's great gentlemen - elegant, poised, always flawlessly dressed - it's ironic that he'll probably only ever be remembered as the garish Joker from Batman.
