Not sure about 77, but he was in "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea"

He was in 77 Sunset Strip as Stu Bailey, private eye (I believe)
Don't remember him in Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea"????

Sorry. Actually in the earlier episodes Ward drove a '57 Ford, then it mysteriously changed to Chrysler products.

The last few years, Ward was sporting a '61 Plymouth Fury 4 door. One of the ugliest cars they ever built. :D

The Chrysler designs of that era were the work of Virgil Exner. I always thought the early "60 to '62 Valiants were particularly odd looking.

Come to think of it I was thinking Insurance Salesman when I asked the question but now I'm thinking that was Jim Anderson of Father Knows Best.

Actualy there were a few sitcoms back then that never explained what the Father did. Ozzie of Ozzie & Harriet never explained what he did for a living either, I don't think.

A few more:

Who can name (in order) the hosts of NBC's Tonight Show?

Who spoke Winston Churchill's words on ABC's show (about wartime England)..."Winston Churchill-The Valiant Years?"
(extra credit-Who wrote the great musical score for the show?....Hint: he also wrote the music for Victory At Sea)

Speaking of "Victory At Sea" who was the narrator & what network was it on?

This goes way back: Who played "The Cisco Kid?" (his partner?)

How about "Captain Midnight"? (my father used to tell me he was "Capt. 11 o'clock".....He did everything that Capt. Midnight did but ...........an hour earlier!)
