An actor and director who worked on stage, radio, television, and in feature films, Ezra Stone is still best remembered for having played the well-meaning but troublesome adolescent Henry Aldrich, from 1939 to 1953, on the radio series The Aldrich Family. This popular program was based on a hit Broadway play, What a Life (1938), in which Stone originated the role of Henry. When the radio series ended, he turned toward directing plays and television episodes for shows ranging from Lassie to The Munsters to Lost in Space. Stone played small roles in numerous films. He learned to act at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and his professional career began on stage, in the mid-'30s.
