You might also remember Gautier for his starring role in the 1960 musical Bye, Bye Birdie, in which he played Conrad Birdie.

His performance was so memorable he was nominated for a Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Musical.

If you recognise his voice, that’s because he was also the voice of characters in Tom and Jerry and The Addams Family.
