There's a great piece in the New York Times, which refreshingly doesn't skirt around his bisexuality...

Quote
His longtime partner was Robert Calhoun, whom he met while doing a National Repertory Theater tour of which Mr. Calhoun was production manager. He died in 2008. Asked about his preferences in the 2007 Times interview, Mr. Granger said, “I’ve lived the greater part of my life with a man, so obviously that’s the most satisfying to me.” ...

...For Mr. Granger, the live audience was what made theater superior to filmmaking. “I love getting laughs,” he said in an interview in 1982, in the midst of a substantial run as a replacement Sidney Bruhl in “Deathtrap” on Broadway. “Next to sex, laughs are the best things in the world.”

Aside from his Euro output, I always remember him for Rope in particular. R.I.P.
