Patricia Owens appeared in about 40 films and 10 TV episodes in a career form 1943 to 1968. She was spotted by a 20th Century Fox executive that was watching some of her work in England and a contract ensued which landed her a part in the 1956 film "Island in the Sun". A big break came for her as a loan out to Warnor Brothers in the 1957 Marlon Brando classic, "Sayonara". In this film, critics gave her high kudos for her performance, but it was not until 1958 when Fox cast her as the tormented Helene Delambre in "The Fly" that gave her career that needed push. She carried much of the film along with Vincent Price. The image of her horrified visage in a "fly's eye" view is considered one of the ultimate moments of the genre. Unfortunatley she never achieved parts half as good after that and was reduced to back lot parts in jungle drama. Her last professional appearance was a "Lassie" episode in 1968. One of her three husbands was screenwriter and producer Sy Bartlett. She has one son, Adam Nathanson, who contributed to this bio.
