Zachary Scott was the smooth-talking, sophisticated tough guy of more than 30 movies.

A darkly handsome man with a mustache, Scott once described his typical screen role as "a hell with charm."

He appeared in many westerns. His movie credits included "Stallion Road," "Cass Timberlane," "Whiplash," "Flamingo Road," "Born to Be Bad" and "The Young One."

A meeting with Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne was the big break of his career. Scott was invited to New York, where he got a role in a stock production of "Those Endearing Young Charms."

Jack L. Warner spotted him there and invited him to Hollywood and his first movie "The Mask of Dimitrios" in 1943 brought him immediate fame.

Scott turned his attention back to the legitimate theater during the 1950s, appearing in "The King and I" in New York; "Subway in the Sky" in London and "Requiem for a Nun" at London's Royal Court Theater.
