Monroe Owsley Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 1901
  • Died: Jun 7, 1937

Son of actress Gertrude Owsley, Monroe Owsley began his own stage career in his teens. In films from 1929, he gained a measure of fame by repeating his Broadway role as Ned, the inebriated younger brother of heroine Linda Seton, in [[Performer~P158300~Philip Barry~philipbarry]]'s [[Feature~V95423~Holiday~holiday]] (1930) (when the film was remade in 1938, Owsley's part was essayed by [[Performer~P3047~Lew Ayres~lewayres]]). Thereafter, he was typecast as a dissipated, often debauched young playboy, seldom garbed in anything other than a bathrobe or smoking jacket. Monroe Owsley died at age 36 from a heart attack suffered during a car accident. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
