An actor whose intense likeability often outshined his versatility, Fred MacMurray remained a Hollywood staple throughout all stages of his career. From the handsome romantic lead, affable everyman and comedy star to lustful murder and power-hungry betrayer, MacMurray’s best work often came when playing against the nice-guy image. MacMurray survived the golden age and his career found new legs as Disney’s go-to man for their live action franchise. He continued his family man persona as the patriarch and star of the long-running television comedy My Three Sons. MacMurray never let success get to his head, and throughout his years in film and TV, he would bring a brown bag lunch to work, remaining every bit the everyman he portrayed on screen.
