He trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, played the lead role in Stalag 17 by Donald Bevan and Edmund Trzcinski on Broadway (1951). He went on to make a number of films for MGM in quick succession in the 1950s. His first appearance was in Teresa (1951), directed by Fred Zinnemann, which also launched the film careers of Pier Angeli and Rod Steiger. He then went on to appear in a series of films which included Rhapsody, The Student Prince, Green Fire (all in 1954), and Bad Day at Black Rock (1955). His career continued, mostly on television, for the next 30 years. He co-starred with Anne Francis in the detective series Honey West in 1965, and he occasionally appeared in films such as Pretty Boy Floyd (1960), 7 Faces of Dr. Lao (1964) and Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971).
