Harry Lewis (1920-2013)

a week or so ago I wrote abt him.  in Hollywood lore he is better rememberd for his restaurants than his movie roles.  however he did have some memorable screen moments -- particularly in "Key Largo" :

but most remember him for Hamburger Hamlet.  when my partner & I sat with Lewis & his wife Marilyn at the Beverly Hilton they were supporters of the event  putting gift certificates for Kate Mantalini's in the gift bag.  & before we left town we had a free meal on the couple.
