He made his first talking debut in 1927 in the promotional trailer for The Jazz Musician inviting audiences to see the upcoming landmark film. In later years he played imposing, authoritative parts such as high-ranking executives and military officers. He is best remembered as General Custer in Cecil B. De Mille's epic The Plainsman.
