  1. Yes.a forgotten actor. I first saw him in the sci-fi series Atom Squad as an alien who could morph. Jim did have an extensive career. Why he was underused I don't know. He did some decent drama and decent comedy. Despite the number of characters he played he is more than a forgotten is a rarely known actor. For his westerns he belongs on the b--westerns at the old corral website. As for Atom Squad not much of it has been saved. I believe when I saw it in very early 1950s it was broadcast live from Philadelphia. The assistant scientist\alien hunter made a good career for himself in tv comedy and detective. Check it out. Griffith died in 1993. Just a little too soon before I uncovered these rare actors of my youth and had the resources to contact them.
