After Wagner was signed by 20th Century Fox he played romantic leads with ease, but it wasn't until he essayed the two scene role of a shell-shocked war veteran in “ With a Song in My Heart “(1952) that studio executives recognized his potential as a dramatic actor. He went on to play the title roles in “ Prince Valiant “ (1954) and “ The True Story of Jesse James “ (1956), portrayed a cold-blooded murderer in “ A Kiss Before Dying “ (1955).
In the early '60s, however, Wagner suffered a series of personal and professional reverses. His "ideal" marriage to actress Natalie Wood had dissolved, and his film career skidded to a stop after “ The Pink Panther “ (1964).
