Biography:

Turnbull was a professional dancer, appearing in many musical stage productions and in films of the 1940s and 1950s, often unbilled. He was a highly-regarded tap dancer, working as a faculty member in the 1980s teaching master classes with "Rhapsody in Taps" in California. He was also a professional tennis player and incorporated the weight distribution of that sport into his tap teachings. His visual signature was red socks.
