Ronald Egan "Ron" Randell was an Australian actor whose six-decade-long career began in his teens on radio in his native Australia. He then moved to the stage, then to movies, and eventually to television.


Randell appeared with Donna Reed and Cornel Wilde in Beyond Mombasa (1956). The film was made by Hemisphere, an offshoot of Columbia, which shot films outside the US. The film was co-produced with Todon, the production company of agent-turned producer Tony Owens and his wife, actor Donna Reed.
