His motion picture credits included "Prince of Foxes," "The Men," "Bird of Paradise" and "The Enforcer."

He is also widely known for "Citizen Kane," "Lady From Shanghai" and a "Twilight Zone" episode called "The Fever" in which he's chased by a slot machine.

Sloane performed on Broadway and in several radio dramas early in his career. He made his Broadway debut in 1935 in "Boy Meets Girl" and followed that with roles in "Three Men on a Horse" and "All That Glitters."
