From Disney to variety, comedy to action, military to horror, his roles were often portayed the sinister or overbearing, and he possessed the looks and ability to convey his character roles on stage and screen better than most.

His last role was in 'Forced Vengeance' in 1982 with Chuck Norris and David Opatoshu. Mr. Emhardt won The Critic's Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor for the 1948-49 season for his performances in 'Life With Mother". He died the day after Christmas 1994 of heart failure in Ojai, CA at the age of 80, and is survived by his wife Silvia (Sideli) and their three children, i.e., a son and two daughters.

Most resources have his date of birth is listed as 7-24-14 but at least one has it as 7-16-16.
