Actor
    (February 12, 1919-October 25, 1986)
    Born in Plainfield, Indiana
    Portrayed Sgt. Morgan O'Rourke in 'F Troop' (1965-67)
    Appeared in 'The Westerner' (1940), 'Keeper of the Flame' (1942), 'The Yearling' (1946), 'Gunfighters' (1947), 'The Sands of Iwo Jima' (1949), 'Warpath' (1951), 'Ride the Man Down' (1952), 'The Pony Express' (1953), 'Rage at Dawn' (1955), 'Three Violent People' (1956), 'The Abominable Snowman' (1957), 'The Strange World of Planet X' (1958), 'The Crawling Eye' (1958), 'Auntie Mame' (1958), 'The Night They Raided Minsky's' (1968), 'Chisum' (1970), 'Final Chapter: Walking Tall' (1977) and 'Thunder Run' (1986)
    He landed a job as master of ceremonies at the Old Gayety burlesque theater in Washington, DC, but was soon fired because he was underage.
    During the 50s, he appeared mostly in B-list Westerns and sci-fi films.
    After 'F Troop,' he starred in three short lived series: 'Dusty's Trail,' 'The Ghost Busters' and 'Filthy Rich.'
    Betty Grable commented, 'They say the two best-hung men Hollywood are Forrest Tucker and Milton Berle. What a shame - it's never the handsome ones. The bigger they are, the homelier.'
    He got his big movie break because at 6'4 he was imposing enough to play the heavy opposite Gary Cooper in 'The Westerner.'
    He served with the US Cavalry during World War II.
    He portrayed Harold Hill more than 2,000 times over five years in the touring production of 'The Music Man.'
