A capable, rough-hewn leading man, his toothy grin and lanky body made him a perfect tough guy in numerous leading and supporting roles in Western (genre)/westerns and action films, such as The Magnificent Seven, Hell Is for Heroes (film)/Hell Is for Heroes, The Great Escape (film)/The Great Escape, Our Man Flint, In Like Flint, Duck, You Sucker!, and Cross of Iron.
