Best known as the child of popular 1930s and '40s bandleader and pianist Eddy Duchin, this New York-born man also had a musical career in his own right, releasing piano and big band recordings on the Capitol, Bell, and Decca labels and frequently collaborating with New Orleans jazz musician Jimmy Maxwell.
Before graduating from Yale University, he studied for a time at France's Sorbonne (the University of Paris).
His mother, a socialite named Marjorie Oelrichs, passed away when he was just days old.
His first marriage, to Cheray Zauderer, resulted in three children. His second marriage, to actress Brooke Hayward, also ended in divorce; he married his third wife, Virginia Coleman, in 2012.
His father, Eddy Duchin, became notorious for the release of a hit song, "Ol' Man Mose," that contained what sounded like a curse word.
