Lewis Stone Facts
Stone's death was a particularly tragic one. A group of rowdy teenagers had invaded his meticulously kept garden, and he ran out to prevent damage and ask them to leave. The effort proved too much for the gallant 73-year-old and he collapsed of a heart attack, dying almost instantly.

He had a Lifetime Contract with MGM and appears in the Guiness Book Of World Records as "Artist With The Longest Contract To One Studio." He signed with MGM in 1924 at the very start of MGM and remained with them as a contract player until his death in 1953. A total of 29 years.

Fought in the Spanish-American War (1898).
