One of my earliest memories is of going on the stage with Mother and Dad in one of their plays. I wore a wig of golden curls and played a girl.
According to Laura Wagner in her article for Films of the Golden Age, Issue #81, Summer 2015, Universal wanted Onslow to change his stage name to "Ronald Stevens" because they felt his first name was not "romantic" enough. Onslow would not agree to it as he felt he was not the romantic type. He did allow them, however, to shorten his last name to Stevens.
