Personal Quote:

I was told I had arrived when, during the shooting of The Searchers (1956), they gave me almost as much ammunition as they gave John Wayne.


Had starred in the unsold, unshown NBC series pilot "Journey Into Fear" in 1966. Based on the same Eric Ambler novel as the 1942 movie with Orson Welles. See more »
