Perhaps not a household name now, but for 20 years Barry was a major TV star as the sharply-dressed lawmen of the series "Bat Masterson" and "Burke's Law." He began his career on Broadway opposite Mae West in "Catherine Was Great" (1944) and starred in the 1953 alien-invasion film "War of the Worlds."

Classic 60s & 70s "cool" actor. I remember him from The Name of the Game and I saw him twice in La Cage aux Folles on Broadway. Oh and I think he was the very first murderer Lt. Columbo fenced with. Solid actor.
