Amiable, dark-haired, often moustachioed supporting player of Russian parentage, frequently seen as (sometimes comic) Mexicans or native Americans. His biggest success was probably as the pusillanimous 'Redskin' Crazy Cat in the hit TV western series F Troop. His film debut, though, came more than a decade before that, in Borderline (1950). He worked prodigiously on TV and film appearances were scarce, although they included The Iron Mistress (1952), Omar Khayyam (1957), The Old Man and the Sea (1958), The Story of Ruth (1960), Swingin' Along (1961), .Irma La Douce (1963) , The Carpetbaggers (1964), How Sweet It Is! (1968), Viva Max! (1969), Mrs Pollifax - Spy (1971), Breezy (1973), The Toolbox Murders (1978) and Herbie Goes Bananas (1980), his last theatrical feature, although he continued to work on TV until 1987.
