SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 18 Royal Dano, a character actor who often played cowboys, villains and Abraham Lincoln in a career that began with the musical "Finian's Rainbow" on Broadway in the 1940's and concluded with the film "Teachers" in 1984, died on Sunday at his home here. He was 71.

The cause was heart failure, said his manager, Milton Ebbins.

Mr. Dano was born in New York and educated at New York University. He played on Broadway in "She Stoops to Conquer" and "Metropole" before making his film debut in "Undercover Girl" in 1949.

Other films in which he appeared were "The Red Badge of Courage" (1951), "Carrie" (1952), "Johnny Guitar" (1954), "The Trouble With Harry" (1955), "Moby Dick" (1956), "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" (1960), "King of Kings" (1961), "The Undefeated" (1969), "Skin Game" (1971), "The Outlaw Josey Wales" (1976), "Hammett" (1982) and "The Right Stuff" (1983).

Mr. Dano's lankiness and hollow cheeks led to several engagements as Lincoln, on television and in an outdoor staging of "The Tall Kentuckian" for the 175th anniversary of the city of Louisville in 1953.

His many television appearances included roles in the series "Omnibus," "Suspense," "Lights Out" and "Cavalcade of Stars."

He is survived by his wife, Peggy, and son, Richard.
