One film role Hale is well-known for is the Soothsayer in the 1953 adaptation of William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, which also featured John Hoyt, Ian Wolfe, Lawrence Dobkin, and Michael Ansara. He and Ansara appeared in several other films together, including Kim (1950, with Dean Stockwell, Arnold Moss, and Hamilton Camp), Soldiers Three (1951), Jupiter's Darling (1955), and Pillars of the Sky (1956, with Keith Andes). In 1967, Hale co-starred with fellow TOS guest actors Frank Overton, Paul Fix, and William Windom, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine actor Brock Peters in the acclaimed classic drama To Kill a Mockingbird.
