Character actor Stewart Bradley did not begin his decades-long acting career until after he'd performed a military stint during WWII. He first performed on the East Coast stage but then headed to California where he continued in theater. He entered feature films in 1956, working opposite Jayne Mansfield in The Burglar. After that, he only occasionally appeared in films. Bradley worked more often on television, appearing on such series as Studio One, The Jackie Gleason Show, and Ironside.
