Acting career

Hutton was born in New York City and studied at the Actors Studio. He had a brief acting career between 1954–62, including an appearance as an army deserter in the episode "Custer" in Gunsmoke (series 2, 1956), as well as two guest appearances on Perry Mason in 1957: he played Rod Gleason in the series' fifth episode, "The Case of the Sulky Girl", then he played a parking attendant in "The Case of the Moth-Eaten Mink." He made one last television appearance in 1975 in the series Archer.

In 1958, Hutton played a young gunfighter, "The Kid", in the episode "Yampa Crossing" of the western series, Sugarfoot. The following year he portrayed a remorseful defendant on trial for causing a traffic death in Alfred Hitchcock Presents (the episode "Your Witness").


Hutton made his debut as a director in 1965 with Wild Seed. For Where Eagles Dare he tweaked the screenplay by Alistair MacLean with Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood to suit their acting styles. He also directed Eastwood on location in Yugoslavia for Kelly's Heroes. He then directed Elizabeth Taylor in Zee and Co. (1972) and Night Watch (1973).

Later life and death

Hutton quit film making in the 1980s and worked in real-estate. He died in Los Angeles, California on August 19, 2014 at 79, a week after suffering a heart attack. He was survived by his wife.
