Character actor, Gene Evans, was born Eugene Barton Evans on Jul 11, 1922 in Holbrook, AZ. Evans died at the age of 75 on Apr 1, 1998 in Jackson, TN .
Red-haired, blue-eyed, hard-driving American actor with gruff voice, usually in tough or brutish roles, but occasionally effective in leads. The cinema underestimated his versatility, but television allowed him to show his more benevolent side in the series My Friend Flicka. In later years, he continued to be seen mainly in westerns and outdoor dramas.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Character Actors: an Illustrated Directory).
