Great actor with considerable range. OTOH, the vicious killer "Mannon" on a 1969 "Gunsmoke" and at the other, a sensitive Epsicopal clergyman in the best episode I've seen of the 1963 drama "Arrest And Trial". RIP.

He was so evil as Will Mannon. Always thought it was interesting the producers kept bringing him back to do variations on the character.

Love Steve Forrest. On S.W.A.T., he reminded me a lot of Shatner's Kirk. May seem laughable, but just a very stylized, very solid way of telling the story of his character. I know it's not the greatest show but I have a love for it and definitely for Steve. R.I.P., Hondo.

Didn't Forrest play Jock Ewing returned from the dead on Dallas?

Yes, he did - the Producers of DALLAS were going to to keep his role on the show going, but viewers began to turn their nose up at the storyline, so he was written out of the show.

Anyway, I always enjoyed Steve's work...RIP, Hondo!...:-(

Forrest was part of an all-star cast in this tale of Yugoslavian resistance fighters pitted against the Nazis. The production proved so challenging to director Martin Ritt that producer Dino De Laurentiis called in Italian neo-realist director Pietro Germi, who played the "Partisan commander," to assist in the direction. Ritt reportedly hated FIVE BRANDED WOMEN, stating in a 1980 American Film interview that he considered it "the only [film] I'm ashamed of."

HELLER IN PINK TIGHTS marked the first Western film for both director George Cukor and star Sophia Loren. Some sources assert that after Cukor spent five weeks supervising the editing of the film, Paramount re-cut it, to the director’s distaste.
