Biography: Enlisted in the U'S' Navy and served until 1946. After his discharge from the Navy, Tryon was bit by the acting bug and made his Broadway debut in 1952 in the musical "Wish You Were Here". In 1955 he moved to California, and was cast in the 1956 film "The Scarlet Hour". It wasn't until 1958, when Tryon was cast in the lead in the film "Texas John Slaughter" that he became a full fledged movie star. Tryon was slated to appear opposite Marilyn Monroe in the film "Something's Got to Give" as the man she was stranded on the desert island with. Unfortunately for Tryon, the film was shelved when Monroe was fired and, subsequently died at her home. The film was recast and released with Doris Day and Chuck Connors playing the role meant for Tryon. Later in his life, Tryon became a successful author.
