His three-decade career in front of the camera yielding roles in such classic films as The Blackboard Jungle (1955), Rebel Without a Cause (also 1955), and Forbidden Planet (1956), actor Peter Miller's most prolific years onscreen may have been during the 1950s, though he remained active onscreen until the early '70s. Following his debut in Blackboard Jungle, Miller moved on to credited roles in such features as A Strange Adventure (1956) and as the second-billed hoodlum of director Robert Altman's The Delinquents (1957). Trading his pomade for a military-style buzz cut in the later years of the decade, Miller took on roles in 1958's Imitation General and the 1961 G.I. comedy Marines, Let's Go. Onscreen appearances became ever more rare into the following decade, and following Fools' Parade in 1971, Miller bid the silver screen farewell. On October 7, 2003, Peter Miller died of cancer in Santa Monica, CA. He was 73.
