LOS ANGELES (AP) - The set decorator who earned Oscar nominations for his work on "Beaches," "Glory," "Hook" and "Bram Stoker's Dracula" has died.
A longtime friend of Garrett Lewis says he died Jan. 29 of natural causes. He was 77.
Wendy Weaver says Lewis worked as an actor on Broadway and in films and television before becoming a set decorator in the late 1970s. He appeared in "Hello, Dolly" on stage, "Funny Lady" on film and "The Julie Andrews Hour" on TV.
He became a set decorator after designing private homes for his celebrity friends and went on to work on 39 films, including "Pretty Woman," "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Steel Magnolias."
Lewis is survived by his sister, Jane Peiker, and five nieces and nephews.
