THE EPITOME OF COOL: THE FILMS OF RAY DANTON by Joseph Fusco

Ray Danton was a tall, dark, and menacing actor with a deadly baritone and an in-your-face attitude that was startling for his era. He started his film career as a B-Movie actor in the 1950s, became an expatriate playing James Bond clones in the 1960s, and ended his acting career in drive-films during the disco era of the 1970s.

Danton appeared in forty movies over a twenty-year period before becoming a successful television writer, director, and producer. Fans of the early 1960s retro gangster genre may remember The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond and The George Raft Story, the hallmarks of Ray Danton's career that exemplify his unique acting style by showcasing an electrifying no-holds-barred personality that took no prisoners.

Discover showcases of his impressive resume that was created in the shadows of fame and recognition. The author analyzes an original acting style that is contemporary and fits in comfortably with our aggressive times.
