I found this in *Ephraim Katz*:

Cochran, Steve, Actor, b. Robert Alexander Cochran, May 25, 1917, Eureka, CA. d. 1965. Ed. U. of Wyoming. He was a railway hand, a cowpuncher and and a store detective at Macy's before beginning his stage career in Detroit. He later appeared in stock, reached Broadway in 1944 and often portrayed heels and insensitive lovers, playing some of his best roles at Warners in the early 50s. In 1948 he co-starred with Mae West in the Broadway revival of
"Diamond Lil' and in 1953 formed his own film company, Robert Alexander Productions. In 1957 he went to Italy to play the grim lead in Antonioni's "Il Grido". Shortly before his sudden death aboard his yacht in 1965, he wrote, directed, produced and starred in the film "Tell me in the sunlight", which was released posthumously two years later.
