Biography in: "Who's Who in Comedy" by Ronald L. Smith. Pg. 135. New York: Facts on File, 1992. ISBN 0816023387


On Wednesday, August 8, 1979, noon, William Demarest received a "star" on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Upon his arrival at this event, Mr. Demarest greeted the public with a cheerful "Hello folks!" Cast members from TV's "My Three Sons" attending this event included: Tina Cole, Barry Livingston, Stanley Livingston, and Fred MacMurray. Mr. Demarest's star is located at 6667 Hollywood Blvd. This was a fun Hollywood celebration. [Source: Steven A. Fredrick].


In his later years, he became a household name on TV as retired sea captain Uncle Charley, replacing a seriously ill William Frawley in My Three Sons (1960).


When movie offers began to diminish, Demarest segued into television work with many guest spots and a regular co-starring role as a ranch foreman in the western series Tales of Wells Fargo (1957). As a character actor, his quiet intensity and comic timing kept him in demand well into his eighties.


Played a character with the name Steve Martin in two movies The Jolson Story (1946) and Jolson Sings Again (1949).


Co-starred on NBC Radio's "The Eddie Bracken Story" (1945).


However, Demarest was truly at his best during the 1940s as a member of Preston Sturges's unofficial stock company of players, noted for his trademark deadpan or exasperated expressions. He made his reputation in eccentric comic supporting roles, invariably seen as pushy, wary or droll cops, business guys or wisecracking, jaundiced friends of the hero with names like Mugsy, Kockenlocker or Heffelfinger.

The Great McGinty (1940), Sullivan's Travels (1941) and The Miracle of Morgan's Creek (1943) are often cited as his best films.


He entered movies in 1926 and first appeared in Vitaphone one-reelers and in films for Warner Brothers, which included the first sound picture, The Jazz Singer (1927).


A stocky, serious-looking character, Carl William Demarest started off in vaudeville in 1905 along with two older brothers. At one time he also performed in a stage act with his wife Estelle Collette (billed as 'Demarest and Collette') and then moved on to Broadway.
