Thanks to everyone who responded. Now, who is A.C. Lewis?
A C Lewis before his death owned alot of proporites in BR and also owned the Belmont and Oak Manor hotels...
Which back in the days were the top hotels of choice in Baton Rouge..
When the movie the toy was filmed he housed all the cast including Richard Pryor and Jackie Gleason at the Belmont. His House on Old Perkins was used as the setting of Jackie Gleasons house in the movie.
A C Lewis also donated the YMCA that bears his name on North Foster..
