Dynasty information

Don MedfordA prolific TV director, Don Medford, has died at the age of 95. He passed away December 12th at the West Hills Hospital and Medical Center in Los Angeles.

His daughter Lynn reported his death to THR on Wednesday. Medford had been a resident of the Motion Picture & Television Fund’s retirement home in Woodland Hills since 2001.

Born Donald Muller, Medford worked on numerous TV shows from the early 1950s until the late 1980s including multiple episodes of The Detectives, The Rifleman, The Untouchables, Dr. Kildare, Alfred Hitchock Presents, The Twilight Zone, The FBI, Baretta, The Fall Guy, Dynasty, The Colbys, and on and on.

Medford also directed episodes of The Fugitive, including the two-part series finale. The 1967 last episode was seen by an estimated 78 million people and stood as the most-watched episodes of a television series until 1980. The record was broken by the resolution of the “Who Shot JR?” cliffhanger on Dallas.

What do you think? Do you recall Medford’s work? Have you seen the last episode of The Fugitive?
