Mini Bio (1)
Elliott Lewis first made his mark as an actor, writer, producer and director on radio in the late 1930's. His voice was also heard on Gordon Jenkins' classic recording of "Manhattan Tower" on Decca Records in 1945. In contrast to his prodigious radio career, in which he worked either alone or in tandem with his first wife, Cathy Lewis, his movie career, like those of most radio actors of the period, wasn't nearly as prolific, with only three films to his credit. As the 1950s wore on, he drifted away from acting to concentrate on the writing, producing and directing end of the business. After the "Golden Age of Radio" ended, Lewis moved to TV as a producer of such shows as The Lucy Show (1962) and The Mothers-In-Law (1967), and director of all but one episode of the final season of Petticoat Junction (1963); however, radio remained his first love, and he continued to direct the occasional radio play well into the 1970s.
