Actor. Although he had roles in sixty-five motion pictures, his best known role was that of 'Christopher Hale' on the television western series "Wagon Train" from 1961 to 1965, replacing actor Ward Bond when he died in 1960. Although never performing a lead role in any of his movies, he had supporting roles in films that have come to be considered classics, such as "The Asphalt Jungle" (1950), "Pyscho" and "Elmer Gantry" (1960) and "Rooster Cogburn" (1975). His distinctive voice lent him to voice over and voice actor work as well; he narrated (unaccredited) the 1955 Audie Murphy biographical picture "To Hell and Back", and he voiced characters in the Walt Disney Studios animated movies "The Rescuers" (1977) and "The Fox and the Hound" (1981).
