Tall, reliable-looking American actor with wavy brown hair, often cast in roles of authority, but perhaps unfairly best remembered for his leading role in the classic turkey Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959). Later on, he essayed some sadistic villains. Born Bernard Mattox, and spotted in small-town theatre work, he made his film debut with a flurry of movies in 1952: Red Skies of Montana, Fearless Fagan, Above and Beyond and Battle Zone. Later film work included Battle Cry (1954), Tiger in the Sky (1955), Strange Lady in Town (1955), Mister Roberts (1955), The Lieutenant Wore Skirts (1956), The Persuader (1957), Badman's Country (1958), The Outsider (1961), On the Double (1961), Captain Newman, MD (1963), the title role in Bill Wallace of China (1967), Changes (1969), Prime Cut (1972), Joe Kidd (1972), The Last American Hero (1973), The Sugarland Express (1974), The Eiger Sanction (1975), Midway (1976), Every Which Way But Loose (1978), Norma Rae (1979), House II: The Second Story (1987) and Ed Wood (1994), his last.
