American actor with curly hair and "bad guy" looks. Lambert studied to be an English professor but, after gaining his degree, took himself off to Hollywood in the war years and played some really nasty villains in dark clothes, often with a psychopathic streak, and not usually with too much brain. He was a man you loved to see bite the dust but, failing to get a wider range of roles, Lambert drifted away from films after 1963. Also first mate aboard the Riverboat in the successful TV series of 1959-61.
