Warren Steven's Finest Role!
Actor Warren Stevens recently passed away at age 92. While he probsbly is best remembered for his role as Doc Ostrow in the classic 1954 sci-fi flick,"Forbidden Planet,"I felt that that his best part was as a bum who steals a murdered club owner's exquisite loafers and is subsequently possessed by his spirit in a superb 1962 Twilight Zone episode,"Dead Man's Shoes."
When I had the high honor of interviewing him on my cable TV show,"Mysteries From Beyond the Other Dominion," a few years ago,he concurred with my assessment of the role. He jokingly complained that his recent royalty checks from the episode had dimnished to only a few cents.Now, please enjoy this intriguing TZ entry:
