His credits include "The Three Musketeers" (1935), "When Tomorrow Comes" (1939), "Appointment in Berlin" (1943), "House of Dracula" (1945), "Angel On My Shoulder" (1946), "Night Has a Thousand Eyes" (1948), "Sirocco" (1951), "Them!"

Born Onslow Ford Stevenson in Los Angeles, he was the son of character actor Houseley Stevenson. He made his performing debut in 1926 at the Pasadena Community Playhouse, to which he frequently returned as an actor and director. His later career was hampered by alcoholism. Stevens' death at 74, in a Los Angeles-area nursing home, was ruled a homicide caused by neglect.
