Preston seemed to of had 3 distinct phases as an actor. He specialized playing weak jellfish in the 40's, more bland manly roles in the 50's followed by more fast talking comic roles in the 60's and beyond.

I stayed with it as long as I did because I was fascinated with Walter Matthau channeling Brando 9 years before the fact by playing a gangster with a wad of paper jammed into his mouth.
