Producer. Born David Levy, he moved to New York in 1925 where he was a stage actor there until a bronchial infection affected his voice and ended his stage career several years later. In the early 1930s, he began his film career as a script reader and was an assistant to producer Irving Thalberg for the films 'Riffraff' (1936) and 'Camille' (1937), before becoming an associate producer for such films as 'Dark Victory' (1939), 'Million Dollar Baby' (1941), 'Till We Meet Again' (1944) and 'Tomorrow is Forever' (1946). Among films he went on to receive full credit as a producer for were 'Arch of Triumph' (1948), 'The End of the Affair' (1955), 'The Seventh Sin' (1957) and 'Raintree County' (1957). Lewis, who retired in the late 1960's, was the long-time companion of director James Whale from 1930 to 1952 and is inurned in a niche directly across from him.
