Reed Hadley was a veteran actor who starred on television in "Racket Squad" and "Public Defender" in the 1950s.
The 6-foot 4-inch Hadley, who left his job as a floor-walker in a department store to enter acting, protrayed "Red Rider" on the radio in the 1940s.
Television made his face a familiar one. One critic noted that as Capt. John Braddock in "Racket Squad," the soft-spoken Hadley "never mitted a moil or smooched a sweetheart."
His last feature film was "St. Valentine's Day Massacre."
He died of a heart attack at age 63.
