Hello fans,

Today we're catching up with Tony Dow. He was Wally in 'Leave
It To Beaver'. This show was before my time, but I do remember
watching re-funs and I thought Tony was just so dreamy.

He was the reason I watched the show.

Anyway, let's find out what Tony has been up to. And I must 
say, he is an attractive older man.

Be Well,
Anisa

                        TONY DOW

BIRTH DATE: April 13, 1945, Hollywood, California


CLAIM TO FAME: No question in anyone's mind, Tony Dow 
is and will always best remembered for playing Wally Cleaver, 
the clean-cut and much wiser older brother of Beaver on the 
classic sitcom 'Leave It to Beaver'. 

FAMILY LIFE: Shulkind, Lauren C. (1980 - present) 1 child 
Marlow, Carol M. (1969 - 1978) (divorced) 1 child 

INFO: Tony won the role of Wally Cleaver in a casting cattle 
call with almost no previous acting experience.

TRIVIA: Tony Dow's mother, Muriel Montrose, was a stuntwoman 
in early Westerns, Clara Bow's double and a Mack Sennett 
Bathing Beauty. She also appeared in Our Gang.

In 1965 Tony joined the National Guard.

Was a junior Olympics diving champion.

In the 70s, he attended journalism school while working in 
contracting and construction.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, he re-teamed with his "Leave 
It to Beaver" (1957) co-star Jerry Mathers and performed in 
dinner theatres.

In the 1990s, Dow revealed that he has struggled, and was 
eventually diagnosed with, Bipolar disorder. He has since 
starred in self help videos chronicling his battle with 
the disorder.

In 2001 Tony sued Viacom for an ad campaign on its TV Land 
channel that featured him in a doctored photo wearing tattoos. 
"Time Changes. Great TV Doesn't," the ad said. Dow's suit 
alleges that the ad portrayed him in an "unwholesome and 
negative light" and that it in effect transformed him into 
"an involuntary spokesman without pay, and of course, without 
consent or even his knowledge" for the TV channel. (The case 
brings to mind a courtroom sketch in which Dow himself spoofed 
the Wally Cleaver character in the 1977 comedy The Kentucky 
Fried Movie.) 


WHERE IS HE NOW: Since the show's demise, Tony has appeared 
sporadically in a couple feature films and in a few television 
movies. He reprised the role of Wally in the 1980s in the 
made-for-TV reunion film Still the Beaver (1983) and in the 
series it spawned. 

Tony disappeared for a few years and then re-emerged as a 
director of television episodes for such series as 'Babylon 5'
and as a producer of films like 'It Came From Outer Space II.'

Recently (2007) he, Jerry Mathers and 91-year-old Barbara 
Billingsley celebrated the 50th anniversary of "Leave It to 
Beaver" by reuniting and inaugurating the 24-hour TV-Land 
marathon.

I was suprised to find out that Tony had a role General 
Hospital in the 70's. 

His last onscreen appearance was in the 2003 film 'Dickie 
Roberts: Former Child Star.'

In 2007 he was building luxury condominiums, but the real 
estate bust has kind of slowed this down.

Has turned down numerous offers to appear in celebrity 
reality shows.

Tony is a modern art sculptor, and is represented exclusively 
by Karen Lynne Gallery in Beverly Hills. One of his bronze 
pieces is on display in the backyard garden of his one-time 
TV mom Barbara Billingsley. 

Now a grandfather, Tony and his wife Lauren live close to 
Billingsley.
