William Demarest (1892-1983) had begun his movie career in 1926 in When the Wife's Away. The following year, he appeared in The Jazz Singer with Al Jolson; he would later receive an Oscar nomination for Best Actor for his role as Jolson's fictional mentor, Steve Martin, in 1946's The Jolson Story. Demarest continued making films until 1975, although he became increasingly busy with television work. Beginning in 1965, he assumed one of the roles with which he would become most associated: "Uncle Charley" on the TV sitcom, My Three Sons (1965-1972).
