Biography by Hal Erickson

The first time we saw American actor Dewey Martin was as Butch in 1949's Knock on Any Door. Though his all-American features would have ensured him a long career as a leading man, Martin made a conscious effort to avoid being pigeonholed, essaying such complex characters as escaped convict Hal Griffin in The Desperate Hours. He appeared with frequency on television, showing up on the many filmed anthologies of the 1950s and 1960s, as well as the made-for-TV movie Assault on the Wayne (1971). Evidently, Dewey Martin retired from acting around 1975.
