Personal Quote:

No doubt about it, I was in another series---'King Row,' for Warner Brothers. It did nothing for me: in fact, it died after 13 weeks. But Wagon Train (1957) is the best thing that has happened to me. Fortunately, I held out against an exclusive contract. I'm able to do outside TV once a month. And I can do different things so I won't be typed as a Western actor. See more »
