A baritone with a distinctive voice that was alternately praised and parodied, Robert Goulet was born in Lawrence, Mass., on Nov. 26, 1933, but spent his adolescence in Canada, studying opera at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and perfecting the timbre that would make him famous.

Goulet caught the attention of American audiences in 1960 in the Lerner and Loewe musical "Camelot," starring as Sir Lancelot opposite Richard Burton and Julie Andrews on Broadway, a role that made him a star and helped launch his recording career. He went on to win a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1962 and a Tony Award in 1968 for "The Happy Time," and he would ultimately appear in the Broadway revival of "Camelot" in 1993 -- only this time, playing the role of King Arthur.

Goulet's film credits include Beetlejuice (1988) and Naked Gun 2½ (1991). He died Oct. 30, 2007, at the age of 73.
