I believe this is the same William Smith who later went on to become the star of several biker flicks in the 1960s. Google him and discover that he was indeed a Purple Heart awardee for service in the USAF during the Korean War. He was fluent in Russian and several other languages and was earning his Ph.D. in Russian at UCLA when he broke into the movies.
