EVENING @ THE BARN -- THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ERNIE
Time & Location
About the Event
Hollywood Heritage and The Hollywood Foreign Press Association
will begin streaming this very special event April 14, 2021.
In the fickle world of Hollywood fame can be fleeting especially for a child star. As soon as puberty arrives, the adorable tyke who won the hearts of millions is often tossed aside. Barry Livingston is one of the lucky few who have managed to make the transition into successful adult actor. Barry, along with his brother Stanley, were fixtures on one of the longest running television series “My Three Sons,” starring Fred MacMurray. In addition to this iconic television show, both boys had a long run on another show familiar to baby boomers “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.” It was here that Barry got his very first acting lesson from star Ozzie Nelson.
Barry was fortunate to have worked with some of the biggest film and television stars and directors and benefited from their guidance, for example Lucille Ball was a fixture in his life at Desilu Studios. Former child actor and director Gene Reynolds was a great ally. Paul Newman, Debbie Reynolds, Myrna Loy, Jack Benny, William Frawley, Jerry Lewis, and Roddy McDowall were all influential to a boy who had acting ambitions beyond his childhood.
Throughout his life, Barry returned to his first love: film and television. But, keeping his foot in the game was not easy, work became scarce and he endured some dark periods. Through it all, Barry kept his eye on the prize, and it paid off. He has become one of the most sought-after character actors in Hollywood; landing rolls in Oscar nominated films, “Zodiac" and “Social Network” and television rolls on “Will & Grace,” “Boston Common,” and “Bosch” to name a few. For this EVENING @ THE BARN he shares his acting journey with us through a series of anecdotes, photos and clips, as well as a Q&A. Some are funny, some are sad; but all showing what it’s like to be a Hollywood Survivor.
