MacMurray, Fred

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004


    Extremely versatile actor who played a wide variety of roles, from the broadly comic, as in 1963’s The Absent-Minded Professor through the mildly comic, as the father on television’s My Three Sons, to the downright sinister Lt. Keefer in 1954s The Caine Mutiny and, most memorably, opposite Barbara Stanwyck in 1944’s Double Indemnity.

    MacMurray is caricatured as “Fred MacFurry” in The Woods Are Full of Cuckoos (Tashlin, 1937).
