Edmund Hartmann

Edmund Hartmann, a competent television producer and scriptwriter who penned comedy scripts for Bob Hope, including “Paleface,” and was behind such durable family comedy series as “My Three Sons,” died at the age of 92.
Hartmann died of natural causes at his home in Santa Fe, N.M.
In a long and profitable career, Hartmann accrued credits on a lot of motion pictures, of every kind, and also produced four television series. He also wrote other material from plays to songs and one-liners.
Hartmann composed several classic comedies for Hope, including not only “Paleface” in 1948, but also “Sorrowful Jones” in 1949. In his fecund decade at the studio, he also wrote for other major stars, including Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis in the 1953 comedy “The Caddy.”
In the late 1950s, Hartmann opted for television, and from 1960 to 1972 produced “My Three Sons,” starring Fred MacMurray. Hartmann also wrote several episodes of the show.
Hartmann took delight in the family situation comedy, and in 1966 produced “Family Affair,” which starred Brian Keith as a rich swinging bachelor who suddenly must look after three orphaned children, and Sebastian Cabot as the bachelor’s proper British manservant. The series ran on CBS for five years and enjoyed many reruns.
