Stella Stevens Biography taken from
Stella Stevens was a writer, comedian, producer, director, actor, and star. She was voted number 27, as one of the sexiest women on the planet by Playboy.

Her first novel, Razzle Dazzle, published by Tor/Forge Books, came out in July OF 1999. She co-authored the book with William Hegner. Razzle Dazzle is a sexy romp through the dazzling decades of the sixties, seventies, and eighties. Stella thinks it would make a colorful and funny musical.

One of Stella’s early films was Girls! Girls! Girls! with Elvis Presley. Like Elvis, Stella was born in Mississippi, then lived in Memphis Tennessee. Some of her latest credits include Blessed starring James Purfoi and Heather Graham and Strip Mall, a comedy TV series with Julie Brown. Stella also appeared in a Western movie for Showtime, with Richard Crenna called By Dawn's Early Light.

Stella has shown her talents in an endless display of work. For example, she played the title role as the woman who rose from the dead in, The Granny, a comedy-horror film.

She has starred in three films that are considered classics in their genres. First, the classic disaster movie, The Poseidon Adventure, second, the classic comedy, The Nutty Professor, and third, the classic western, The Ballad of Cable Hogue. She also played the zany Phyllis Blake, in Santa Barbara, and was NBC's first madam on a series, as Lute Mae in Flamingo Road.

Stella has two Quarter Horses, and passionately loves to ride the high desert country hills and canyons. She also plays tennis, shoots, skates, and skis. She enjoys walking, camping, fishing, swimming, river-rafting, archery, and fencing. She likes to watch baseball, football, basketball, boxing, track and field events, and winter sports, especially ice skating. She loves to roller skate at the beach.

Stella has directed two films; The American Heroine and The Ranch. She was originally groomed for stardom by Twentieth Century Fox, Paramount, and then Columbia. At Paramount, after Li'l Abler, she did Deadlock, with Jeffrey Hunter and David Janssen, Girls! Girls! Girls! with Elvis Presley, and Too Late Blues with Bobby Darrin. Then a loan-out to MGM for Advance to the Rear with Glenn Ford and The Courtship of Eddie's Father, with Glenn Ford and Ron Howard, and back to Paramount for The Nutty Professor, with Jerry Lewis.

At Columbia she did The Silencers with Dean Martin, Rage with Glenn Ford, Synanon with Edmond O'Brien and Alex Cord, How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life with Dean Martin, and Where Angels Go Trouble Follows with Rosalind Russell.

Here is a quote from Robert Lanthier, the president of the Reel Cowboys:
Stella was a longtime friend of mine --- and the Reel Cowboys as well! Those that remember her coming to the Saturday morning breakfasts also remember and loved her. I was Stella's presenter at the 2005 Silver Spur Awards Show. Stella & I were very close friends, she was a down to earth beautiful woman and my heart will be broken for a long time. Those that remember her at the Cowboy breakfasts certainly do miss her.........the Cowboys loved her dearly.
