    I would say that he was better known as Jim Crown from Cimmaron Strip than Paul Regret in The Commancheros.

      He stood out as a very handsome extra grinning at Barbara Rush in a blink & you'll miss it appearance in "When Worlds Collide", his first film.
      He made his name in "Johnny Nobody" playing alongside the great Ethel Barrymore.
      As well as a fine screen career he was very astute in real estate & was a very wealthy man. R.I.P.

        A "Magnificent Man" now left his flying machine for a higher place. Good actor not quite reaching the echelons of star power perhaps?

          On British TV as US Marshal Jim Crown in Cimarron Strip with Percy Herbert as his deputy. Not a bad leading man he made a good living in entertainment which by many accounts made him a Billionaire in the business world.

            He was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award for The Mark (1961), in which he played a man who falls in love with a young girl, is sentenced to prison for intent to commit child molestation and emerges wanting to conquer his urges and build a normal life.

            Although it shied away from the darker complexities of the issue, the film was sensitive and daring for its time, and Whitman brought humanity to an unsympathetic part.

            A last-minute replacement for Richard Burton, he arrived in London seriously doubting whether he could handle the role: “I was even thinking, well, ok,...

              Another western he made was RioConchos which is a very similar story to The Commancheros which is not surprising as Clair Huffaker had a hand in both screenplays. I personally prefer Rio Conchos also starring Richard Boone.
