MINI BIO:

Brad Dexter was a big, muscular, stiff-moving American actor who looked as though he had wandered in from a Russ Meyer movie, but tended to play grating villains who had as much brain as brawn. A talented amateur boxer, he became more interested in acting and did well for a while in the Hollywood of the early 1950s. Later he turned producer, sometimes producing films starring Frank Sinatra, a personal friend whose life Dexter once saved in a swimming mishap. The only actor of the "The Magnificent Seven" not to become a major star. At one time, he was married to singer Peggy Lee.
