First met his wife, the former Barbara Long, through Roddy McDowall and reconnected later at the Laguna Playhouse while both were appearing in the play "French Without Tears" in 1948. A year later they married and had one daughter, Janet. He subsequently appeared with his brother-in-law Richard Long in Cult of the Cobra (1955).

His dentist father, Laurence Thompson, was a decorated WWI medic who received shrapnel injuries during his tour of duty. Decades later, a small fragment dislodged and caused a fatal stroke. He was in his late 60s. His mother, Pauline, was a one-time concert singer. His parents met while she was entertaining WWI troops.

He produced, directed and starred in A Yank in Viet-Nam (1964), a film that could have had tragic consequences. It was an on-location anti-Viet Cong picture that had the Viet Cong putting a price on his head during the shoot. The picture was important in that it was the first filmed during the war and while under fire.
