Actor who became a star with his role as scout Flint McCullough on the classic Western Wagon Train.

After that, Horton again concentrated on a singing career along with appearing in various stage productions. He returned to television, this time in daytime drama, with a role in the CBS soap As the World Turns from 1982-84.
