Actor. Having success on the Broadway stage, he was enticed to Hollywood for some singing work in musicals in the mid 1930s. Hired by Grand National Studios, he appeared in the leading roll for the tuneful seafaring yarn "Captain Calamity," 1936 and as Wild Bill Hickcock in "Frontier Scout," 1938. With the success of singing cowboys in motion pictures, he was signed at MGM staring in "The Great Waltz" and for Warner Brothers in "Blockade," both 1938. From 1939 to 1940, he starred in an eight part short film production "Tales of Billy the Kid" for PRC (Producers Distributing Corporation), but dispite the promotion and previews in theaters the series was never released. He continued acting and his last film was "The Lone Rider," 1942. Cause of death, heart attack. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
