Steve Brodie (November 21, 1919 – January 9, 1992) was an American movie and television actor from El Dorado, Kansas. Born John Stevenson, he took his screen name from Steve Brodie, a daredevil who claimed to have jumped from the Brooklyn Bridge in 1886 and survived. Brodie appeared in over 200 films, mostly from the mid-1940s to the early 1950s. He worked at various studios, including MGM, RKO and Republic Pictures, appearing mostly in westerns and B-movies. He played supporting roles in the majority of his films, including the 1947 film noir classic Out of the Past and 1950's Armored Car Robbery. An exception was 1947's Desperate, where he had a starring role. Later appearances included roles in two Elvis Presley films: 1961's Blue Hawaii and 1964's Roustabout. Beginning in the mid-1950s, he appeared mostly on television, with guest starring roles in such series as The Public Defender, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Pony Express, and The Brothers Brannagan. Brodie was married to actress Lois Andrews from 1946 until her death in 1968. Their son Kevin Brodie (born 1952) was a child actor who later became a film writer and director.
