By Charles Tranberg This book is based on many interviews with such MacMurray friends and co-stars as Don Grady (who also wrote the foreword), Tommy Kirk, Beverly Garland, Jane Wyman, Arlene Dahl, Joan Leslie, Director Gene Reynolds and many more. It covers MacMurray's life from his boyhood in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin to his years as one of the most celebrated and durable of Hollywood stars. This is the first biography of the star of "My Three Sons" and such classic filmas as "Double Indemnity", "Hands Across the Table", "Murder, He Says," "The Caine Mutiny", "The Absent-Minded Professor" and "The Apartment."
