James Gregory's film career was slow to start after he switched from stockbroking to acting in the post-war years, but in later days he became one of television's most frequent and efficient guest stars in drama series. His gruff voice and soothing manner often concealed villainous instincts, but he also played friendly advisers and unbending superiors. He made up for his late start by notching up almost 40 years as an actor.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
