Warren Stevens

Actor

Born - 2 November 1919, Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA
Died - 27 March 2012

Light-haired actor of lean, saturnine good looks, mostly in fourth or fifth place on the cast list in action films at 20th Century-Fox and Universal-International in the 1950s, before going into dozens of TV series, chalking up more than 200 credits in all; smiles and comedy roles were rare, as Stevens' characters were, more often than not, on the shadier side of the law. He began furiously busy in films: Phone Call from a Stranger (1951), The Frogmen (1951), Red Skies of Montana (1951), Deadline (1952), Wait Til the Sun Shines, Nellie (1952), The 'I Don't Care' Girl (1953), Shark River (1953), The Barefoot Contessa (1954), Black Tuesday (1954), The Man from Bitter Ridge (1955), Duel on the Mississippi (1955), The Price of Fear (1956), Forbidden Planet (1956, perhaps his best-remembered role), Accused of Murder (1956), Man or Gun (1958), Hot Spell (1958), Intent to Kill (1958) and No Name on the Bullet (1959). Later credits included 40 Pounds of Trouble (1962), Gunpoint (1966), See You in Hell, Darling (1966), Madigan (1968), The Student Body (1976), Stroker Ace (1983), Samurai Cop (1989), The Trail to Hope Rose (2004) and Carts (2007), his last. He died from chronic obstructive lung disease.
