Lean, dark, laconic American actor, the son of Oscar-winning actor Richard Dix (Ernest Brimmer). After a Hollywood beginning at MGM in small roles, his co-starring roles were mainly in exploitation movies that fared better on DVD than in cinemas, as well as appearing in (and sometimes scripting) several low-budget horror movies from his mid thirties: Athena (1954), Hit the Deck (1955), Forbidden Planet (1956), Forty Guns (1957), Frankenstein's Daughter (1958), Lone Texan (1959), Young Jesse James (1960), The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come (1961), Air Patrol (1962), Deadwood '76 (1965), The Road Hustlers (1968), Blood of Dracula's Castle (1969), Horror of the Blood Monsters (1970), The Killers (1971) and Live and Let Die (1973). Towards the end of his life, he appeared as an elderly member of the famous horror family in The Last Frankenstein (2016). Five times married, he died from respiratory failure.
