Known for depicting tough, square-jawed men and once quoted as saying he "made a career out of playing sons of bitches"; actually [[MeanCharacterNiceActor quite nice in real life]] (depending on who you ask). Had something of a LargeHam reputation, though he proved that he could tone it down and still act pretty well. Often tag teamed with Creator/BurtLancaster, though some sources claimed the two men strongly disliked each other. He also played a very important role in ending UsefulNotes/TheHollywoodBlacklist going on in the film industry during the '50s and '60s, most notably by defending ''Spartacus'' screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. His career was largely ended by a stroke that permanently affected his speech in 1996.
