He was the son of a Slovak factory owner. He studied chemistry and spent time in Switzerland. He was worried about the Russians taking over Czechoslovakia and in 1948 decided to leave. It would take too long to move to the US or Canada so he went to Australia in 1949. While there he changed his name to "Frederick Stafford". "I always liked the name," he later said.


Fluent in five languages, in the 1950s he held a series of positions in the pharmaceutical industry.


By 1962 he was a regional manager for Bristol Meyers headquartered in Hong Kong. Two years later in Bangkok he met an Austrian Actress Marianne Hold and married her seven days later.
