Two films I really like Hargitay in are The Bloody Pit of Horror (which goes by many titles), and Lady Frankenstein. In The Bloody Pit of Horror, Hargitay plays "The Crimson Executioner"— a man distraught by the world's degenration and perversion. How does he handle fixing things? By tying naked girls up and torturing them. Seems perfectly logical. In Lady Frankenstein we get to see some better acting and more clothing for Mickey. As The Crimson Executioner he is always running around shirtless, but as Captain Harris he gets to play the good guy gone bad, if you will. He is the local law, but is a bit of a dirtbag. I am pretty sure he is dubbed, as is likely everyone, but it is a more serious, less naked-chest-centric portrayal. Later in life he would appear with his daughter on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and really does a fine job. Sometimes it is not skill as much as availibilty of roles that define an actor.
