Fred MacMurray began his career playing saxophone in a dance band, toured with a comedy stage band, and made his Broadway debut in the revue, Three’s a Crowd (1930). He worked in several Hollywood films before starring in 1935’s The Gilded Lily with Claudette Colbert with whom he was later paired in the popular The Egg and I (1947).

MacMurray’s versatility led to a variety of roles: dance band leader in the musical comedy And the Angels Sing (1944) where he and Dorothy Lamour introduced “It Could Happen to You”; an accomplice to murder with Barbara Stanwyck in the drama, Double Indemnity (1944); and the inventor of an anti-gravity substance in the comedy, The The Absent-Minded Professor (1961). Although he played dramatic roles in The Caine Mutiny (1954) and The Apartment (1960), during the latter part of his career he focused on his “good guy” image, starring in several Disney films and in the TV series, My Three Sons.
