Ben Gazzara will be honored with the 2009 Harvey Award by the museum dedicated to Jimmy Stewart.

The 78-year-old actor will receive the award from the James M. Stewart Museum Foundation on April 25. The museum is in Stewart's hometown of Indiana, Pennsylvania, about 45 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

The Harvey Award is named for the 1950 film in which Stewart befriends an invisible rabbit.

Gazzara co-starred with Stewart in Otto Preminger's "Anatomy of a Murder." He also starred in the '60s TV series "Run for Your Life."

Past Harvey Award winners include June Allyson, Janet Leigh, Shirley Jones, Ernest Borgnine and impressionist Rich Little, who will host the dinner honoring Gazzara.
