He was the classic television father of the late '50s and early '60s that everyone wanted as a dad. Hugh Beaumont played Ward Cleaver on the hit series Leave It to Beaver. The actor was born in Kansas, and his father was a traveling salesman who often kept his family on the move.

Yet, that didn't stop Beaumont from following his dreams. He began his career in 1931, performing in theatres, nightclubs and on the radio. A lot of his earlier films are uncredited, but it is believed that he started his motion picture journey in 1940.

9/10. Great guy. Knew some of this, had good instincts on others, but missed the Eddie Haskell thing. I thought it really sounded like his way of thinking.
