American actor in films that include "The Sundowners," "Kismet" and "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral," as well as TV features and guest roles. Formerly an accountant and hotel manager, he became one of Hollywood’s major heavies, starting in 1950. Tall and lean, he appeared in over 60 movies, as the evil leering, moronic thug specializing in westerns and gangster roles. Elam's menacing glare seemed natural as he lost the sight in his left eye in a childhood fight. His performance in "Dead Presidents," 1996, found him still productively acting in his 70's.

The character actor, famous for his role as a shifty villain in many Westerns, died on the afternoon of October 20, 2003 in Ashland, OR of congestive heart failure
