He also appeared in Gigi (1958), Thunder in the Sun (1959), the cult horror film The Hypnotic Eye (1960), and A Global Affair (1964). In 1957, he received the Golden Globe Award for Foreign Newcomer.

He divorced Rogers in 1957. In 1959, he married Dorothy Malone; the couple had two children, Mimi and Diane Bergerac. The marriage ended in divorce in 1964. He appeared in a few more films and on television, including Batman, 77 Sunset Strip, Alfred Hitchcock Presents (3 episodes), The Lucy Show, Get Smart, and The Dick Van Dyke Show.
