Robert Stevens (December 2, 1920 - August 7, 1989) was an American director and producer. He led on a career of producing and directing many television shows and movies for nearly 4 decades.

He was most active throughout the 1950s and 1960s. His most famous and notable works include his works as the producer/director of Suspense, as the director of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and as the director of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour and as the director of the movie Change of Mind.[1][2] He also directed the pilot of The Twilight Zone.

Work became slow for Stevens after the 1970s. His last work was as the director of an episode of Amazing Stories in 1987.

In 1989, shortly before his death, Stevens was robbed and beaten in his rented Westport, Connecticut home where he had retired to in 1987. He died shortly thereafter of cardiac arrest on August 7, 1989 in Westport. He was 68 years old.[3]
