Biography

The starring career of shaggy-haired CCNY graduate Robert F. Lyons rose and descended during the "youth trip" era of the 1960s. After a few standard bad-guy assignments in such films as Pendulum (1968), Lyons was praised to the rafters for his role as the ingenious draft-dodger in 1970's Getting Straight. Nowadays, a comparatively well-groomed Lyons can be seen in such direct-to-videos as Platoon Leader (1986). Robert F. Lyons was the star, producer and screenwriter for the 1985 Vietnam-angst drama Cease Fire. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
