Paul Emory Newlan (June 29, 1903 – November 23, 1973) was an American film and TV character actor from Plattsmouth, Nebraska.[1] He was best known for his role as Captain Grey on the NBC police series M Squad[2] and for his roles in films including The Americanization of Emily and The Slender Thread.


Early in his career, Newlan worked in Vaudeville, sometimes doing as many as 10 shows a day.[3]

Newlan appeared in dozens of films and TV shows between 1935 and 1971. Among his other film roles were My Favorite Spy, The Captive City, The Great Adventures of Captain Kidd and The Buccaneer, in addition to smaller roles in numerous other films including Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd, Abbott and Costello Go to Mars, You're Never Too Young, We're No Angels, and To Catch a Thief.

On March 4, 1955, Newlan appeared as the outlaw Jules Beni in an episode of Jim Davis's syndicated western series Stories of the Century. Gregg Palmer played Jack Slade, the superintendent of the Central Overland California and Pikes Peak Express Company, in Julesburg, Colorado, who sets out to capture Beni.[4]

Newlan portrayed Big Harpe on the miniseries Davy Crockett[5] and General Prichard on the ABC war series Twelve O'Clock High. He also made appearances on series such as Gunsmoke, The Deputy, Thriller (4 episodes), Wagon Train and most notable the 1964 Twilight Zone episode "The Brain Center at Whipple's".
