Ida Lewis (actress)

Ida Lewis (May 1848 - April 21, 1935) as Ida May Lewis[1] was an American stage and screen actress. She started in the theater when Daly and Wallack were the top manager impresarios. She later appeared in many silent films allegedly beginning with David Horsley studios in 1911, but she has no IMDb credits for 1911 unless they are uncredited; a possibility.[2] From 1913 she did much silent film work. She appeared in Frank Keenan's version of The Bells in 1918.[3] Her final film was in 1932 in an uncredited role in the May Robson 'Grandma' segment of If I Had a Million.
