Al Lewis Dies at 82

Al Lewis, who passed away today at the age of 82 (not 95, as is popularly believed), did not have a very distinguished film career, appearing mostly in B-movies or sporting bit parts in better known films, but the world will forever remember him as Grampa on the 1960s TV sitcom The Munsters. Playing "Dracula" to Fred Gwynn's "Frankenstein monster," the two bumbled their way into more hair-brained schemes then you could imagine. In addition to a couple of Munster reunion movies, Lewis also appeared in the films Night Terror, South Beach Academy, Fast Money, Car 54, Where Are You? (the 1994 big screen version of the sitcom, in which he also starred), My Grandfather Is a Vampire, Bum Rap, Married to the Mob, Comic Cabby, Used Cars, They Might Be Giants, The Boatniks, and They Shoot Horses, Don't They?.
