Bunny Lewis was a London-based songwriter-manager-producer who was best known in the late 1950s and early '60s for managing Craig Douglas -- and giving the singer (heretofore known as Terry Perkins) -- the name under which he would become famous. Lewis also later managed Doug Sheldon and Christine Quaite. As a composer, he contributed the song "A Voice in the Wilderness" to the Cliff Richard-starring feature film Expresso Bongo (1959), and also wrote a handful of songs that figured in the reportory of early-'60s U.K. pop star Helen Shapiro, specifically "Kiss 'n' Run," "Let's Talk About Love," "Little Miss Lonely," and "Marvelous Lie." He wrote songs for a handful of movies, including Richard Lester's debut feature, It's Trad, Dad and the thriller The Painted Smile (both 1962).
