Photoplay Album, 1968
He played a young husband in "Love on a Rooftop" but in real life he's about as eligible a bachelor as there is around. A native of Penfield, N.Y., he comes from a long line of doctors and had expected to be one himself until a campus production of "The Rose Tattoo" gave him an acting bug which even his M.D. father couldn't cure. Dr. Deuel did prescribe medicine, however; he advised Pete to quit college (St. Lawrence University) and enroll instead at the American Theatre Wing in New York. From there he toured with a Shakespeare company; made a movie in the Philippines; co-starred in the national company of "Take Her, She's Mine"; and wound up in Hollywood. His favorite sport is exploring the back country in his land cruiser, but he's interested in unaffected girls, too.
