Fabian Forte will be honored by the museum dedicated to actor Jimmy Stewart.

The 65-year-old singer-actor will receive the 2008 Harvey Award on Oct. 24 from the James M. Stewart Museum Foundation. The museum is in Stewart's hometown, Indiana, Pa., about 45 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, the AP reported.

Fabian was a teen idol in the late 1950s and early '60s who appeared in more than 30 films, including two with Stewart, "Dear Brigitte" (1965) and "Mr. Hobbs Takes A Vacation" (1962).

Past Harvey Award winners include June Allyson, Janet Leigh, Shirley Jones, Ernest Borgnine and impressionist Rich Little. The foundation's award is named for the 1950 film in which Stewart befriends an invisible rabbit.
