#Quote
1One of my earliest memories is of going on the stage with Mother and Dad in one of their plays. I wore a wig of golden curls and played a girl.
#Fact
1Met fourth wife Marley Shofner after he directed her in a 1958 production of "The Waltz of the Toreadors" in Laguna Beach, California.
2Mother was actress Margurita E. Behrens.
3First appeared on Broadway in the production of "Stage Door" in 1936. His last Broadway play was 1957's "A Clearing in the Woods." Off stage he had altercations with his leading ladies, Kim Stanley and Joan Lorring.
4Met his first wife, socialite/actress Phyllis Cooper, at the Pasadena Playhouse. They eloped but separated almost immediately and divorced by two months time. He eloped with his second wife, Anne Buchanan, also a socialite/actress, when he directed her in a stage production of "Many Mansions." They divorced after a few years. He met and married third wife Vicki Clark while she was a student of his at the Pasadena Playhouse. That marriage lasted two years.
5Preferring the stage to films and appearing on Broadway a number of times, his best known film role was as Franz Edlemann, a surgeon to Dracula, the Wolf Man and the Frankenstein Creature, who becomes a vampire himself.
6Interred in an unmarked grave at Pierce Brothers Valhalla Memorial Park in North Hollywood, California.
7Studied at the Pasadena Playhouse where his father taught. Appeared in such plays as Chekhov's "The Seagull," Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" and Dumas' "The Three Musketeers." His appearances in local plays led to a Universal contract. He later taught and directed at the Pasadena Playhouse himself.
8On stage from age 3 with his parents.
9The oldest of four children, his actor/father Houseley Stevenson taught at the Pasadena Playhouse.
10Opened his own acting school in 1961.
11Was an electrician in his salad days.
12RKO signed him up in 1937 and he was to appear in their classic film Stage Door (1937) but the role he played on Broadway was drastically changed and he wound up not appearing in it.
13According to Laura Wagner in her article on Onslow in Films of the Golden Age, Issue #81, Summer 2015, Onslow, suffering from a serious heart ailment, was checked into the Hacienda Convalescent Hospital in Van Nuys, California, in the fall of 1976, by his wife. In November, he was brutally pushed by another patient and suffered a broken hip from the fall. An ambulance was called and Onslow was "treated" at a nearby hospital. His wife claims he was grossly neglected, developed pneumonia, and died. An inquest was held by the coroner and it was determined that he died "at the hands of another, other than by accident." Charges were brought up but they eventually were dropped.
14Suffered from bipolar disorder and alcoholism in middle age and received electro-shock treatments which affected the output of his later career. Thereafter on stage he became increasingly known for ad-libbing his lines and causing problems for the other actors.
15Joined the Army out of high school.
16According to Laura Wagner in her article for Films of the Golden Age, Issue #81, Summer 2015, Universal wanted Onslow to change his stage name to "Ronald Stevens" because they felt his first name was not "romantic" enough. Onslow would not agree to it as he felt he was not the romantic type. He did allow them, however, to shorten his last name to Stevens.
17Received critical praise for his appearances as a playwright in the film Once in a Lifetime (1932) and in Peg o' My Heart (1933), when he replaced Leslie Howard in the lead, but the two roles did not lead to anticipated film stardom.
18An avid nudist. Stevens would often try to convince his fellow cast members of the health benefits associated with naturalism.
19Son of actor Houseley Stevenson, brother of Houseley Stevenson Jr. and Edward Stevenson.
