Richard Crane

  1. Edward Platt, Rebel Without A Cause, 1955.   For Fremick,  the sympathetic juvenile division counselor, director Nicholas Ray had the choice of Platt,  the British Peter Gray (no kin to Billy Gray up for Plato), Walter Reed, James Whitmore.  Even Superman George Reeves… and Richard Crane,  the Indiana guy best known as the hero of the serial, Rocky Jones, Space Ranger, 1954.  Old Nick (!) much preferred testing the potential Judies… from Jayne Mansfield to under-age Natalie Wood. In bed.
