Actor. From 1936 to 1952 he appeared in scores of westerns and serials at Republic, usually playing heavies. After serving in the Army during World War II, he went on to better roles in more important films. Young's credits include "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (1951), "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" (1954), "The Glenn Miller Story" (1954), "The Last Hurrah" (1958), and "The Horse Soldiers" (1959). As the newspaper editor in "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" (1962), Young delivered the classic line: "This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend". He was married to exotic dancer and actress Noel Toy from 1945 until his death; Toy kept his ashes until her own death in 2004, after which the couple were interred together at Hollywood Forever. Young is often confused with another actor named Carleton G. Young (1907-1971), who worked mainly in radio and is buried at Inglewood Park Cemetery.
