Warren Stevens - 1919-2012

Warren Stevens, the actor who appeared in the sci-fi cult classic Forbidden Planet, has passed away. Mr Stevens played the character of Doc alongside Leslie Nielsen in the film, one of the many ill-fated characters killed by an invisible monster prowling the planet. While he never achieved fame as a film star, Stevens did appear in a number of low grade efforts, including Phone Call From A Stranger, Nellie and Gorilla At Large. His primary vocation was in television, and he guest starred in a huge number of shows through the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Among the serials he made appearances in were Perry Mason, The Man From UNCLE, The Mod Squad, Mission: Impossible, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea, Star Trek, Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Rawhide, and most recently in a 2006 episode of ER.

Mr Stevens passed away in Los Angeles on March 27th, aged 92.

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney's keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them. Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
