Bowman, Lee

 Person

Lee Bowman (December 28, 1914 – December 25, 1979) was an American film and television actor. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Bowman graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 1936 and began his film career playing a bit part in Swing High, Swing Low (1937). His many film appearances include A Man to Remember (1938), Love Affair (1939), Third Finger, Left Hand (1940), Design for Scandal (1941), Buck Privates (1941), Tonight and Every Night (1945), Smash-Up: The Story of a Woman (1947) and Youngblood Hawke (1964). Bowman also appeared regularly on television including several guest appearances in the television series Robert Montgomery Presents. Bowman hosted the short-lived game show What's Going On? on ABC in late 1954. In his later career, Bowman was a pioneer in developing media training for the Republican leadership in Washington. From 1974 until his death, he was Chairman of the Kingstree Group, an international consulting firm, which offers communication advice to business and political leaders all over the world. Kingstree's global headquarters is now located in London, England. Bowman was responsible for developing the 'conversational' approach to spoken communication, which is recognized today as the only successful model for business and political presentations and media interviews. He died from a heart attack in Brentwood, Los Angeles, California three days before his 65th birthday.
