Charles Drake became a dependable character actor in many films from the 1940s through the 1970s. In the mid 1950s, Drake began appearing on then-popular television dramatic anthology series, including Climax!, Robert Montgomery Presents, and Playhouse 90. Into the 1960s, his film career slacked off, but his television career had taken off, with many guest-star roles on such series as Wagon Train, F Troop, Mannix, and Star Trek.
In the early 1970s, Drake acted in a string of made-for-television movies with exlemplary cast lists, such as Scream, Pretty Peggy, The Lives of Jenny Dolan and Cop on the Beat.
