Biography
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 Philip Barry's Holiday (1930) (when the film was remade in 1938, Owsley's part was essayed by Lew Ayres). 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
