Steve Cochran (in 1946 film "The Chase")


American actor; from his start with summer stock in 1939 he played "heavy" roles in B films of the '40s and '50s.

Cochran's favorite avocation was noted as womanizing. He divorced a first wife in 1946; one daughter, and made a second marriage 1946 to 1948. His third marriage was to a 19-year-old woman in 1961 when he was 44. This romance lasted three years.

In 1952, during a party at his home, he had an altercation with a professional boxer, in which he hit his guest on the head with a baseball bat. No charges were filed.

In 1965, Cochran took a boat crew of six girls for a cruise along the Mexican coast. When they reached Acapulco, the girls all left him from some apparent disagreement. He picked up three Mexican girls, ages 14, 19 and 20. On 3 June 1965, he set sail, heading right into a hurricane off the coast of Acapulco. They survived, but on 15 June, Cochran collapsed while at sea. He had an acute lung infection and died of edema. On 21 June, the boat was found and the three girls rescued, along with Cochran's body.

Source Notes

Contemporary American Horoscopes. In February 2005, PT checked California's records. A Raymond H. Cochran was born on the same day in Imperial County with mother's maiden name of Melvin. Some sources give Steve Cochran's birth date as May 25, 1917 and his birth place as Eureka which is in Humboldt County. These sources say his real name was Robert Alexander Cochran. A little mystery!

Sy Scholfield later notes that there is no mystery. The California Birth Index lists "Robert A Cochran, Mother: Rose, Birth: 25 June 1917, Humboldt County." Wikipedia has "May 25" in error.
