He was one of the busiest Australian actors of the 1950s, appearing in the majority of locally shot features at the time, as well as on stage and radio. Lee Robinson called him "one of the best character actors in Australia."[1] He moved to England in the early 1960s but returned to Australia when the film industry revived in the 1970s.[2]
