BIOGRAPHY

Tall, laconic character player of film and TV usually in Westerns, war films, and other tough guy fare so abundant in the 1950s and early 60s. Jones, who took his stage name from his first film role in Raoul Walsh's "Battle Cry" (1954), worked with some of the most celebrated figures in action filmmaking. Some career highlights include Don Siegel's "Flaming Star" (1960), a superior Elvis Presley Western; "Hell Is For Heroes" (1962), a brilliant WWII film starring Steve McQueen; and Sam Peckinpah's much admired "Ride the High Country" (1962), "The Wild Bunch" (1969), and "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid" (1973). Jones also appeared in such classic TV Westerns as "Rawhide" and "The Virginian".
