Stockwell made his film debut in the 1935 film, Strike Up the Band. However, his claim to fame came in 1937, when he provided the voice of "The Prince" (seen at the beginning and again in the finale) in Walt Disney's animated classic, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Stockwell was also a noted Broadway performer. In 1943, he succeeded Alfred Drake as "Curly", the lead role in Broadway's Oklahoma!. He remained in the role until 1948.
Stockwell died in New York City on July 19, 1984, aged 82.
