Spartacus Star Stone Dies At 92

Movie veteran HAROLD STONE has died of natural causes in a Woodlands Hills, California hospital. He was 92.

The actor is most famous for starring roles in ALFRED HITCHCOCK's THE WRONG MAN and biblical period epics SPARTACUS and THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD.

Stone was nominated for an Emmy Award in 1964 for his portrayal of an Army medic in TV series THE NURSES. He also developed a firm relationship with comedian JERRY LEWIS, who directed him in three films.

Lewis says, "I learned an awful lot from Harold. We became great friends."

Stone once credited HUMPHREY BOGART for his movie career, explaining the CASABLANCA star had befriended him on the set of THE HARDER THEY FALL in the mid-1950s and spread the word that his pal was a great actor.

Stone was remembered with a memorial service yesterday (20NOV05) at Mount Sinai Memorial Park in Los Angeles.
