Biography | show moreshow less
Lew Ayres (1908-1996), starred opposite Greta Garbo in one of the last silent films, The Kiss (1929), then starred in 1930's Oscar-winning talking film, All Quiet on the Western Front. A leading man through the 1940s, he earned an Oscar nomination for Best Actor in Johnny Belinda (1948). He starred as Dr. Kildare in a series of feature films, but refused to play the role on TV because cigarettes were to be advertised on the program. Ayers' conscientious objector got him temporarily blacklisted in Hollywood during World War II, until his heroism as a medical corpsman became known. Ayers remained active in movie and TV character roles through the 1980s.
