Angela Stevens (born Ann Evelyn Allen[1], May 8, 1925 – March 17, 2016) was an American film actress and singer.[1]

Biography[edit]

Stevens was born in Eagle Rock, California.[2] She appeared in several Three Stooges films, such as He Cooked His Goose, Pardon My Backfire and Blunder Boys.[citation needed] Other credits include The Hoodlum, Without Warning!, Creature with the Atom Brain ‘’The Harder They Fall’’ and The Wild One.

In 1955, Stevens sued a dress shop's owners for $36,500, saying that an attack from a "wild and vicious" ocelot disfigured her, which cost her a role in a film.[3]

Stevens married George Zika from the early 1940s[2] until his death in 1999. They had two children. Stevens died on March 17, 2016.[citation needed]
