He was a practicing attorney until the late 1930s, at which point he decided to pursue acting, and by the late '40s, appearances as villains or minor characters (with Horace as his screen name) led to larger parts and better quality pictures.

During the next decade, he appeared in film noirs, westerns, and thrillers, playing characters ranging from a medical resident in the film-noir "No Way Out" to an ex-convict and cold-blooded killer in the thriller "Split Second."
