    More Details Hide Details At Republic, he made his breakthrough in Sands of Iwo Jima (1949), as PFC Thomas, a Marine with a score to settle with John Wayne's Sergeant Stryker. Graduating to top billing, Tucker starred in numerous action films during the 1950s, including Rock Island Trail (1950), California Passage (1950), Rage at Dawn (1955, where he played Frank Reno), The Abominable Snowman (1957), The Quiet Gun (1957), and The Crawling Eye (1958).

Tucker showed a flair for light comedy under the direction of Morton DaCosta that had largely been unexplored in his roles in westerns and science fiction films. At six feet five inches, Tucker tied Sterling Hayden as the tallest star in Hollywood. Co-star Marie Windsor recalled that she was delighted to play opposite someone her 'own size'. Possibly because of his height and build (he wore size 14 1/2 shoes) rumors that he was extraordinarily well endowed circulated in Hollywood. According to one story, while playing golf with friends he was denied a gimme and objected that the distance was so short that he could knock the ball in with his member. On being challenged, he accomplished the feat.

  • TEENAGE
  • 1939
    Age 20
    When Lake's theatre closed for the summer in 1939, Tucker was helped by a wealthy mentor to travel to California and try to break into film acting.
    More Details Hide Details He made a successful screen test, and began auditioning for movie roles. In his own estimation Tucker was in the mold of large "ugly guys" such as Wallace Beery, Ward Bond and Victor McLaglen, rather than a matinee idol. His debut was as a powerfully built farmer who clashes with the hero in The Westerner (1940), which starred Gary Cooper. Tucker stood out in a fight scene with Cooper, and was given a contract with Columbia Pictures.
