Personal Quote:

[on often being cast as a "heavy"] I didn't mind being typecast as a badman. In fact, I enjoyed it. Me, Roy Barcroft, Jack Ingram, and all of us heavies worked all the time. We made good money because we would finish up a day's work on one set, walk right across the lot to another and get paid for two jobs in one day.


Played hundreds of henchman and other heavies in scores of Republic Pictures westerns and serials. See more »
