Among his best known films were Love Affair (1939), Bataan (1943) and Smash-Up (1947). He played the title role in the TV series The Adventures of Ellery Queen (1950-1951). In 1974, Bowman formed Kingstree Media Group to advise politicians and business leaders on facing the mass media, stressing the "conversational approach" to the camera.
