Harold J. Stone, one hard-working actor
1 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These comments are an appreciation of Harold J. Stone, who plays the loan shark in this episode. There was something about his acting that just radiated credibility. He was a bear of a man who could command the screen. What I recall are the flashing eyes and the steely voice. It would take a confident actor opposite him not to back down from that. But Stone could turn that stereotype to humor and self-parody very nicely.

The Jerry Lewis tribute to Harold J. Stone (the full name seems somehow appropriate) reflects the respect Stone likely commanded in the business of Hollywood. I grew up seeing him in many supporting roles, never knowing exactly who he was.

What he was, was one grinder of an actor. Take a look at his filmography year-by-year. If the man wasn't working some lines, he must have been miserable.

One of the early pro's of TV who is missed.
