This is NOT the actor J. Lewis Smith (FInd A Grave memorial 12359) who died five days before, on 11 or 12 Sep 1964, this is a completely different person.

Memorial 12359 is for J. Lewis Smith, they have him listed born 5/24/1906 died 9/12/1964. He is listed in the California Death Index as J L Smith died 9/11/64 and his SSN is listed as 547106452. The Find A Grave memorial has the plot listed as Vesperland 1291 1 which is wrong, a completely different person is buried there.

Forest Lawn shows Lewis James Smith died 9/16/1964 and is buried in Vesperland 1292 1. He matches with the California Death Index, SSN 562098832 born 9/12/1902 (in Georgia, not Ohio, where the actor was from). Lewis James Smith (born in Georgia) is documented on THIS memorial.

I can find no trace of the actor J. Lewis Smith at Forest Lawn, he may not be listed on the website. I have been unable to locate him in this cemetery or elsewhere on Find A Grave. But the person they have posted the marker photo for is definitely NOT the actor, it is of the person whose memorial this is for.
