As his career would progress he would add over 500 acting credits to his resume and portrayed characters ranging from chauffeurs, mailmen, clerks, handymen, carnival operators to doctors.
 
When the silent film era came to an end, he had no issue transitioning to talkies appearing in such feature films as, "Million Dollar Legs" (1932) starring W.C.

(1944) starring Randolph Scott, Alan Curtis, Milburn Stone, Robert Mitchum, Rod Cameron, Noah Beery Jr. and J. Carrol Naish and "Room for One More" (1952), "A Star is Born" (1954) starring Judy Garland and James Mason and "Ambush at Cimarron Pass" (1958) starring Scott Brady and Clint Eastwood.
 
In addition to his many film roles he also appeared on a huge amount of television series such as, "Wagon Train", "My Little Margie" starring Gale Storm and Charles Farrell, "The Real McCoys", "I Love Lucy", "Maverick" starring James Garner and Jack Kelly, "Date With the Angels" starring Betty White and Bill Williams, "Laramie", "77 Sunset Strip" and "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show".
