Additionally, Anderson had roles in the films Paths of Glory, Seven Days in May, Seconds and The Long, Hot Summer.

His career took off in the 1950s largely due to support from Cary Grant, who saw Anderson perform on the NBC show Lights, Camera, Action, and subsequently asked for a meeting. That led to a screen test and a contract at MGM, where Anderson stayed for six years and made nearly 30 films.

He died August 31, 2017, in Beverly Hills, California. He was 91.
