Also on radio, he portrayed Dr. Reed Bannister on Big Sister, narrated Salute to Youth,:293 and was a regular as Sam Williams on Young Doctor Malone.

Lewis' cult crime classic, Gun Crazy (1949). His flair for decadent leering and evil scowls often led to his being cast in "schlock fare", like 1966's Chamber of Horrors and 1971's The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant. He appeared in a small role as a village elder in Young Frankenstein (1974). He appeared in dozens of television programs.

His last major film role was in 1977's The Demon Seed.


Berry Kroeger was the very first announcer for intros and outtros on Suspense, which I believe began in New York before its long Hollywood run. He’s uncredited but there’s no mistaking his voice!
