Ford Rainey was a film, television, and stage actor whose career stretched across seven decades. Rainey began acting while in high school, and eventually worked as both a radio actor and a touring stage actor in the 1930s and '40s. In 1949, he began his movie acting career in an uncredited role in the James Cagney gangster vehicle "White Heat," which was followed up by steady work in both television and motion pictures throughout the 1950s, including the pivotal role of Bisbee Marshal in the popular 1957 western "3:10 to Yuma." Rainey would continue to secure roles in movies with the era's top stars, including 1966's warship drama "The Sand Pebbles" starring Steve McQueen, as well as recurring roles in television. Subsequently, Rainey would continue to take memorable roles (Mickey, an old buddy of Arthur (Jerry Stiller) in the family sitcom "The King of Queens"), before dying of a stroke at the age of 96.
