Family Affair: Season 3 DVD
Family Affair was a popular situation comedy and a regular top 20 hit show produced by Don Fedderson Productions for CBS-TV during its five-year run from 1966-71. Brian Keith stars as bachelor Bill Davis, a highly-paid engineering consultant who lives in a posh Manhattan apartment with his proper English manservant, Mr. Giles French (Sebastian Cabot). Davis carefree existence is turned upside down when his brother and sister-in-law die suddenly in a tragic plane accident, leaving their three children orphaned. Davis becomes an instant father figure to six year-old twins, Buffy and Jody (Anissa Jones, Johnnie Whitaker) and their big sister, Cissy (Kathy Garver).
In Season 3, Jody accepts a dare to clip Mr. Frenchs beard to get into an exclusive club, Buffy brings an early Christmas to a sick little girl, Cissy yearns to become a hippie, Mr. French is cast in a movie about Henry the VIII and Uncle Bill considers marriage to a beautiful (but child-hating) Italian girl.
John Williams joins the family for 9 episodes, as Mr. Frenchs equally unflappable butler brother.
Guest stars include Butch Patrick, Eve Plumb, Joe Flynn and Jamie Farr.
Family Affair Season 3 contains 28 episodes on 5 discs, including the three-part "Lost In Spain" and never-before-seen bonus features.
