Oh, Mr. Grant!
From 1962 until 1979, America's Sweetheart, Mary Tyler Moore, was married to television executive and producer, Grant Tinker. Together, they formed MTM Enterprises in 1969, which resulted in a little thing called The Mary Tyler Moore Show... and suddenly, love was all around.
We admit to a strange, unhealthy obsession with the craggily, conservatively hunky Mr. Tinker; the fact that The Man That Got Away and he share an eerie resemblance has a lot to do with it. (We'll leave it to your judgement if we share a similar resemblance to Mary.) For a time, Grant Tinker and MTM (the lady and the company) were an unstoppable, unbeatable combination -- as well as a strikingly attractive one.
