Popular Actress, Stella who brought comic touch to films is dead

Stella Stevens, a Hollywood actress of the 1960s and ’70s known for her voluptuous figure and graceful comic touch in such films as “The Nutty Professor” with Jerry Lewis and the cruise-ship disaster story has died.

“The Poseidon Adventure,” died February 17, 2023 at a nursing home in Los Angeles. 

She was 84.

The cause was complications from Alzheimer’s disease, said her son, Andrew Stevens.

Ms. Stevens was a divorced teenage mother from Memphis when she drew the attention of talent agents who urged her to try Hollywood. As she was groomed as a contract player by various studios, she was often compared to Marilyn Monroe and 1930s star Jean Harlow for her smoldering blond looks.
