Does anyone know which famous male ballet dancer turned to doing dramatic film roles,
after suffering acute arthritis, that ended his dancing career ?

I remember Alexander Godunov in Witness and Die Hard, but don't know if he had arthritis. More here:

I don't think it's him, from reading his bio

John Gilpin perhaps? I'm not sure how "dramatic" but he appears in the film "Theatre Of Blood" (with Vincent Price), and some films in the 1940's
