Married to the actress Karen Morley, both were brought before the House Un-American Activities Committee and when they invoked the Fifth Amendment they were blacklisted, effectively terminating their careers in Hollywood until the late 1960s.

In 1952 he had appeared as the main villain in Rancho Notorious, but his name was removed from the credits due to the blacklist.
