His other CBS appearances were on Schlitz Playhouse, Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theater, The Texan, Yancy Derringer, Wanted: Dead or Alive, Dundee and the Culhane, Lancer (as Sheriff Dundee in "The Measure of a Man"), Tightrope, Checkmate, and Perry Mason, as he played Sheriff Max Taylor in the 1964 episode "The Case of the Fifty Millionth Frenchman."
