In a rare move, the City of Los Angeles is honoring one of the most prized family-comedies of Television’s Golden Age. Here are the details from a press release:
BY OFFICIAL PROCLAMATION…
THE CITY COUNCIL OF LOS ANGELES HAS DECLARED MAY 16, 2012 – “MY THREE SONS DAY” in LOS ANGELES.
Los Angeles Honors and Celebrates the Show and Cast of Television’s Second Longest Running Situation Comedy Series, “MY THREE SONS”.
OFFICIAL CEREMONY: at 10:00 AM on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 (PDT) at City Hall in Los Angeles.
This family-friendly show had wonderful stars that also shined in motion pictures, including Fred MacMurray (Double Indemnity, The Egg and I, The Caine Mutiny, The Apartment), William Frawley (Gentleman Jim, The Farmer’s Daughter, Miracle on 34th Street), and William Demarest (Sullivan’s Travels, The Jolson Story, It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World).
Later, during its long run, Beverly Garland joined the talented cast. I’m proud that the Forgotten Hollywood Book Series is housed in the Beverly Garland Holiday Inn Bev’s Boutique in North Hollywood. And, congratulations to one of my favorite television programs, while I was growing up… My Three Sons (1960-1972).
Until next time> “never forget”
