Stuart was the eldest child to Cecilia and Joseph Whitman, of Jewish, Russian, English and Scottish ancestry. He and his family would move often during his childhood, and according to his words, he went to 26 schools, before he eventually matriculated from Hollywood High in 1945. Ever since he was five years old, Stuart had become interested in acting, but no one took seriously his desire to become an actor.
Once he finished high school, Stuart joined the US Army and served in the Corps of Engineers for three years at Fort Lewis, Washington. In 1948 he was honorably discharged.
After military service ended, Stuart enrolled at Los Angeles City College to study law, but soon his ambitions changed, and he joined Michael Chekhov Stage Society. For the next four years he studied acting with them, and his next move towards an acting career was joining the Ben Bard Drama School in Hollywood, where he soon made his stage debut, in the school’s production of “Here Comes Mr. Jordan”.
While in college he was spotted by a talent scout, who then cast him in the “When Worlds Collide” (1951), and pretty soon he had several other engagements, though only minor roles in “The Day Earth Stood Still” (1951), with Hugh Marlowe, Patricia Neal and Michael Rennie, than “Barbed Wire” (1952), starring Gene Autry, Anne James and William Fawcett. During the ‘50s he was with Universal Pictures and featured in their productions such as “All I Desire” (1953), and also with MGM, appearing in “Rhapsody” and “Passion” both in 1954, little by little building his name in the acting world. He then portrayed Johnny Chandler in “Johnny Trouble” (1957), and the same year appeared as Eddie Mason in the drama “Hell Bound”. He then moved to Fox before the ‘50s ended, and had roles in such productions as “These Thousand Hills” (1958), and “The Sound and the Fury” (1959). All these appearances helped Stuart increase his net worth, but also secured him status as a star at Fox.
He enjoyed success during the ‘60s, having some of his most memorable roles, such as in “The Story of Ruth” (1960) as Boaz, then as Joey Collins in “Murder, Inc.” (1960). In 1961 he starred next to Clint Eastwood in “The Comancheros”, and also appeared in the drama “The Mark” (1961), for which he earned an Academy Award nomination. In 1965, he was the leading star of the aerial epic “Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines”, and portrayed Brian O’Brien in the adventure drama “Sands of Kalahari”. He then moved to the TV role of Marshal Jim Crown in the series “Cimarron Strip” (1967-1968); his net worth was growing steadily.
However, he couldn’t keep the quality of his roles so high in the ‘70s, which resulted in lesser known films, such as “Night of the Lepus” (1972), “Crazy Mama” (1975), “Run for the Roses” (1977), and “Guyana: Cult of the Damned” (1979), among many others.
His career continued to decline in the ‘80s; although he still landed many roles, very few had much influence on his net worth. In 1985 he starred in the action adventure “Treasure of the Amazon”, and then in 1988 started portraying Clark Kent’s Earth father Jonathan Kent in the TV series “Superboy” (1988-1992). He remained active through the ‘90s, but the results stayed the same, and even worse, without any notable role. He retired in 2001, with his last appearance in 2000, playing George Williams in the action thriller “The President’s Man”, starring Chuck Norris, Dylan Neal and Jennifer Tung.
Back in 1998 Stuart received a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, for his contribution to motion pictures.
Regarding his personal life, Stuart has been married to Julia Vladimonova Paradiz since 1993; she is his third wife. His first wife was Patricia Ann LaLonde. From 1952 to 1966 when they divorced after having four children. After Patricia, Stuart married Caroline M. Boubis in 1966, and had one child with her before their divorce in 1974.
