Biography

Though his official film debut was 1955's House of Bamboo, American actor Robert Quarry had been playing bit parts since at least 1943. In his mid-forties, Quarry finally attained stardom as the leading character in Count Yorga, Vampire (1970) and Return of Count Yorga(1971). Touted as the "new Vincent Price" (with whom he co-starred in 1973's Dr. Phibes Rises Again), Quarry went on to play such juicy roles as the mad guru in Deathmaster (1975, which he also produced) before inexplicably fading from films in the late 1970s. Except for a one-shot as Michael Anthony in a 1978 TV-movie revival of the old series The Millionaire, Quarry virtually disappeared, returning in the mid-1980s in a smattering of low-budget "regional" thrillers. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
