George Matthews, who according to the CBS RMT guide played several "tough guy" roles in movies. The only two RMT roles he had (as a physically abusive husband in "Lost dog" and as a crazed, homicidal sea captain in "Sea fever")


Great actor My favorite


An excellent actor in both roles. You love to hate him!


George Matthews was quite good in "One Came Back," a season three episode of "Have Gun Will Travel." He portrayed a store owner who enlists Paladin's aid to deliver a supply shipment, then keeps him on contend with grudge-holding malcontents. One of Matthews' non-bad-guy roles. Strother Martin also guest-starred.
