Dewey Martin’s three films with Howard Hawks, Land of the Pharaohs (1955), The Thing and The Big Sky are the highlights of his career.  Dewey has 50 acting credits, from an uncredited bit in 1949 to an episode of Police Story in 1978.  His film career is otherwise undistinguished, although he was also in The Desperate Hours with Humphrey Bogart and Fredric March.  Dewey turned 94 in Dec 2017.
