Actor. His career spanned three decades, mostly in television, and is probably best remembered for his role as 'Dr. McKinley Thompson' on the ABC television medical drama "Breaking Point" that aired from 1963 until 1964. Born Paul Richard Levitt he earned a Masters Degree in Theater Arts from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).

One of his most memorable appearances came in the very first "Gunsmoke" episode in September 10, 1955, as the first antagonist to outdraw and nearly kill 'Marshal Matt Dillon' portrayed by James Arness. He also appeared in other television dramas, including "Sheriff of Cochise," "Whirlybirds," "Straightaway," "Dragnet," "The Lawless Years," "Dan Raven," "The Lloyd Bridges Show," "Perry Mason," "The Fugitive," and "The Reporter."
