LOS ANGELES -- Gene Barry, who played the well-dressed man of action in the television series "Bat Masterson," "Burke's Law" and "The Name of the Game," has died. He was 90.

Barry's son, Fredrick James Barry, said the actor died of unknown causes Wednesday at a rest home in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Woodland Hills.

Barry essentially played the same character in all three series: a fashionably dressed hero who bested the bad guys with either cunning or force. The series spanned from the 1950s to the 1970s.

Barry sang in such musicals as "Kismet" and "Destry Rides Again" and created the Broadway role of Georges, the gay night club owner in Jerry Herman's hit musical "La Cage aux Folles."
