Fred Macmurray The Guy Next Door

Season 2, Episode 9 of 12

Amiable and unassuming, Fred MacMurray went from small-town boy to one of Hollywood's most enduring stars. Renowned for his true-life stability and contented role as father to four adopted children, in his later years his career was revived when he became television's best-loved father in the long-running series, My Three Sons. The program includes clips from The Gilded Lily, Double Indemnity, The Caine Mutiny, The Apartment, The Absent-Minded Professor, and My Three Sons. Includes interviews with his wife, June, and daughter, Kate; actors Nancy Olson and Jack Lemmon; and directors Billy Wilder and Edward Dmytryk.
