This web site is dedicated to Fred MacMurray. A man who by his own accounts happened to be in the right place at the right time, to wit: just a LUCKY GUY. But he is so much more. His versatility was truly unparalleled by his contemporaries. Although his success and ability to adapt to an everchanging industry demands note, it is of greater importance that he achieved this succeess without sacrificing his small hometown decency and respect for others. In a city and business where those virtues are so easily lost, one can only marvel and admire his never wavering commitment to them. This website examines his early days through his remarkable career and family life. Like him, it is not glitzy or complicated. It just tells a simple story about a simple but very talented man.

FRED MAC MURRAY:

MOVIE STAR, FAMILY MAN
and
AMERICA'S FAVORITE DAD

Original Cast of My Three Sons



Fred MacMurray is known to this generation as the beloved father of the television series MY THREE SONS. Fred MacMurray as widower Steve Douglas raised his three sons with the help of their maternal grandfather Bub (William Frawley). At the end of its twelve year run, MY THREE SONS would be the second longest running situation comedy , second only to THE ADVENTURES of OZZIE and HARRIET.

But to a previous generation, he will be remembered as one of the Silver Screen's greatest leading men having starred in more movies than any other star except John Wayne and Gary Cooper. So popular as a movie star in Hollywood, he co-starred with more of the industry's Golden Era leading ladies than any other actor.








This website explores his early beginnings, movie career, tv success and homelife. Fred MacMurray described himself as just a "Lucky Guy." His life reads much like a movie script. In the future, I intend to add pages on June Haver's life and career, Fred MacMurray's early movie extra work, vaudeville and Broadway careers. And finally a page relating some of the unknown touching and humorous anecdotes surrounding his life and career. The site originates from Fred MacMurray's hometown of Beaver Dam, WI. I hope you enjoy it and please feel free to email me with comments at RNOLL@powercom.net.
