Never A Dull Moment, Prop cane inscribed to the director

original movie prop

A heavy, hard wood cane used as Fred MacMurrary's prop in the family feel good film and then later presented to director George Marshall inscribed by many members of the cast and crew. It also has a tiny carved face, wearing the always seen wide brimmed white cap that is George Marshall, one of the studio stalwarts who had a 60 year career from 1915 until his death in 1975. Marshall churned out 100s of films with long stints at the various studios and was known to be adept at many genres and to get the work done on time and on budget. He liked westerns and comedy and along the way helmed several Laurel & Hardy, Bob Hope and Martin & Lewis projects. He distinguished himself with DESTRY RIDES AGAIN, THE BLUE DAHLIA and got an Oscar nod for HOW THE WEST WAS WON (think buffalo stampede). The cane is signed by Irene Dunne,  Fred MacMurrary, Bill Demarest (later reunited with MacMurrary on MY THREE SONS), Andy Devine, Ann Doran, Harriet Parsons (the producer and daughter of gossip maven Louella), Jack Kirkwood and assistant director Jimmy Casey. It also bears the title "COME SHARE THE LOVE" which was the original name of the production before being changed.
