Fred MacMurray
Birth: Aug. 30, 1908
Kankakee County
Illinois, USA
Death: Nov. 5, 1991
Santa Monica
Los Angeles County
California, USA

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 never knew that murder smelt like honeysuckle. You were truly suckered Walter by a womans anklet. You mug Walter.

Fred, Loved you in The Apartment and will endeavor to see more of your movies. I'm sure my Uncle will lend me a copy of 'The Caine Mutiny'. Fascinating to know that you rest near my comedy hero John Candy - another screen great. Thanks for the movies
