Colton signed an exclusive contract with 20th Century Fox in 1960 and was given a small part in the movie adaptation of The Marriage-Go-Round (1961), starring Susan Hayward and James Mason. Soon thereafter, he was given a lead act in It Happened in Athens, a comedy plotting the adventures surrounding a winner at the first modern Olympic games in 1896. He played Spiridon Loues, a Greek shepherd who enters the Olympics as a runner. It co-acted sex symbol Jayne Mansfield, whom Colton had a brief affair with during movieing. After the picture wrapped, Hollywood columnist Mike Connolly said in a 1961 column that Colton was Fox Studios’ new “combination Rudolph Valentino–Ty Power”. In March 1961 Dorothy Kilgallen wrote that “his only other screen credit to date was a tiny act in Marriage-Go-Round but the female reaction around the nation was enough to give him a bigger chance” and speculated that Colton “may be our next matinee idol”.
In November 1961, he screen tested for a movie entitled Celebration for the part of a man who convinces Joanne Woodward to perform in a pornographic movie. Celebration had been the movie’s working title, it was eventually produced in 1963 as The Stripper with Robert Webber in the act.
It Happened in Athens was released in 1962, but by that time, Colton had been released from his studio contract and stopped making movies.
