Before beginning his Hollywood career, American actor Robert Emhardt studied at the London Academy of Dramatic Art before joining the BBC as a stock actor. Returning to the United States, Emhardt had a successful run on Broadway before making his screen debut in the TV movie "Marco Millions" in 1939. Maintaining his stage career, Emhardt had a slow start in Hollywood, not landing his first major project until 1950 on "Suspense," a live TV drama. Other parts followed, on "Kraft Theatre" and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents." In 1957 he took his first major film role, as Mr. Butterfield in Delmer Daves' BAFTA-winning Western, "3:10 to Yuma." His next major project was playing the hood Earl Connors in Samuel Fuller's brutal "Underworld United States," a gangster film about revenge. The following year, Emhardt gave strong supporting performances in Roger Corman's drama "The Intruder," about racial tensions in the South, and Sidney Lumet's "The Group." Emhardt continued to work in the '70s, mostly on television, but was unable to find a strong recurring role, instead making guest appearances on numerous shows.
