Steve Cochran Quotes:

Madeline Welton: For three days I'm locked up in a hotel while you're away on a *business trip*. Mustn't talk to anyone; can't go out. Just wait, wait. What am I supposed to do, make faces in the looking glass?
George Legenza: Why don't you do what Mary does? Listen to the radio.

Madeline Welton: Maybe I'll hear you cracked the skull of an old bank guard, killed a truck driver or ran over a child in a getaway. I'm scared! Even liquor won't drive away the nightmares. I can't sleep. When you're away, I'm fenced in and when you come back, it's the same terror. Oh, please, George, please - I want out!
[George slaps Madeline]
George Legenza: Okay, now you got it out of your system. You feel better. Just make like you got caught in a revolving door. Well, come on. We're supposed to be having fun. Enjoy yourself.

Steve Cochran Facts
Ex-brother-in-law of Ida Mae McKenzie and Ella McKenzie.

On June 15, 1965, at the age of 48, Cochran died on his yacht off the coast of Guatemala of an acute lung infection. His body, along with three alive but upset female assistants, remained on board for ten days until the boat drifted to shore and was found by authorities. His death was apparently a mystery, surrounded by various rumors about foul play and poisoning. Merle Oberon tried to use her influence to push for further police investigations.

Married three times and had one daughter, Xandra, by his first wife, artist Florence Lockwood. His relationship with his daughter was strained and eventually they lost touch. His third wife, whom he married at age 44 in 1961 in Las Vegas, was only 19. They later divorced.
