As producer, he was notably involved in the fruitful partnership with director Budd Boetticher, actor Randolph Scott and screenwriter Burt Kennedy which generated a series of fine westerns between 1957 and 1960 (The Tall T, Decision at Sundown, Buchanan Rides Alone, Ride Lonesome, and Comanche Station) through a company he created with Randolph Scott which eventually assumed the name of The Ranown Pictures Corp.
He was married to actress Sally Eilers (1908–1978). They resided in a mansion located at 625 Mountain drive in Beverly Hills, California. It was designed by architect Paul R. Williams and built from 1937 to 1938 by O' Neal and Son.
