Though he was well known for his role in the 1944 film noir Double Indemnity directed by Billy Wilder, in which he starred with Barbara Stanwyck, later in his career he became better known worldwide as Steve Douglas, the widowed patriarch on My Three Sons, which ran on ABC from 1960–1965 and then on CBS from 1965–1972. In college, MacMurray participated in numerous local bands, playing the saxophone. In 1930, he played saxophone in the Gus Arnheim and his Coconut Grove Orchestra when Bing Crosby was the lead vocalist and Russ Columbo was in the violin section. His acting credits span theater, film and television. Although his early film work is largely overlooked by film historians and critics today, he rose steadily within the ranks of Paramount's contract stars, working with some of Hollywood's greatest talents. In 1939, artist C.C. Beck used MacMurray as the initial model for the superhero character who became Fawcett Comics' Captain Marvel. MacMurray was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for The Absent-Minded Professor (1961). MacMurray was the first person honored as a Disney Legend (1987). MacMurray was married twice. He married Lillian Lamont (Lilian Wehmhoener MacMurray) on June 20, 1936 and the couple adopted two children, Susan (born 1940) and Robert (born 1946).
