Handsome leading man Ray Danton trained for an acting career at Carnegie Tech. In films from 1952, Danton made an excellent impression as a hot-tempered Native American in Chief Crazy Horse (1954), but would not star in a film until Outside the Law (1956). Projecting an image of dangerous unpredictability, he was effectively cast in such roles as sex maniac Stan Hess in The Beat Generation (1959). During Hollywood's gangster cycle of the early '60s, Danton played the title roles in The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond (1960) and The George Raft Story (1960). As time went by, he began buoying his villainous characterizations with a wry sense of humor: Explaining his treachery to girlfriend Judi West in the 1965 Man From U.N.C.L.E. TV episode "The Discotheque Affair," Danton smoothly comments, "Darling, I forgot to tell you...I'm a cad." A more pleasant (but no less roguish) Danton was seen as one of the leads of the weekly Warner Bros. TVer The Alaskans (1959-1960). Unhappy at being typecast, Danton turned to directing in 1972 with the theatrical feature The Deathmaster. He later directed episodes of such TV weeklies as Cagney and Lacey, Fame, Quincy, and Dallas, and served a supervising producer of The New Mike Hammer (1984-1987). Ray Danton was married to Julie Adams, with whom he co-starred in Tarawa Beachhead (1958).
