1 9 6 4 – 1 9 6 5 (USA)
13 x 30 minute episodes
Young intern Dr Tom Gentry (Don Galloway) and his recent bride, medical secretary Mary (Joyce Bulifant), rented an apartment at 90 Bristol Court but their combined income did not quite stretch far enough to afford their rent.
So Tom’s bachelor best friend, Dick (Steve Franken) – also an intern – moved in with the Gentrys to share the costs of the apartment. The newlyweds were not thrilled having an extra person around, except when the rent was due.
The series aired on Monday nights at 8.30 pm but – up against The Andy Griffith Show – Tom, Dick and Mary didn’t really have a chance and disappeared after 13 weeks.
Steve Franken died on 24 August 2012 at the age of 80.
