Fred MacMurray

Death: Nov. 5, 1991

Actor. One of the most underrated actors of the 20th century, Fred MacMurray played bemused husband, unrepentant heel and perfect father with panache and style. His career took off after he and Claudette Colbert starred in the forgotten "Grand Old Girl;" they would make seven movies together. He was searing in "Double Indemnity," brilliant in "The Caine Mutiny," and unforgettable in "The Apartment." He was so good as a heel, in fact, that his many fans who enjoyed him in so many Disney movies and the legendary television series "My Three Sons" simply would not accept that Fred MacMurray could ever play a "bad guy." Yet he did, and in so doing, enriched movie history. His body of work is simply stunning, and underappreciated - except for those who recognize a great talent when they see it. (bio by: Portia)

I am awaiting the birth of my son and daughter-in-law's third son, so they are also going to be parents of My Three Sons! Those were the days of fun TV...it is sad and depressing now. Thank you for your contribution to our childhoods!
