Thurston Howell III Reveals His Success Secrets in 5 Words!

Within months after after being rescued off Gilligan's Island, Thurston Howell, was back on top.  In an interview, the successful business owner and tycoon was asked by the National TV news, "To what do you attribute your success and your rebound success?"

"Two Words."  replied Mr. Howell.

"And what two words are they?" asked the news person.

"Good Decisions."  answered Thurston.

"And how were you able to make good decisions?"

The Millionaire responded, "I can answer that question with one word."

"And what is that one word?"

"Know-How".  said Mr. Howell.

"How would you suggest that others gain know-how?"  the reporter questioned.

"Two words." was Thurston's prompt reply.

"And what would those words be?"

"Bad decisions."

Jim Backus, born Feb. 25, 1913, radio personality, movie star, author, and TV actor, was probably best known for his roles as the voice of nearsighted Mr. Magoo and Thurston Howell III.  His  film credits alone amount to over 100!

Mr. Backus was married to his wife, Henny.  He and his wife collaborated on a number of books which include  Only When I Laugh, his autobiography, Backus Strikes Back, a memoir, Forgive Us Our Digressions: an autobiography, and What Are You Doing After the Orgy? — the title taken from a line Backus spoke in the 1965 film John Goldfarb, Please Come Home!
Jim also appeared in a number of TV commercials.  In his last one, he was re-united with Natalie Shafer as the Howells, for a commercial for Orville Reddenbacher's popcorn.   

Jim suffered from Parkinson's disease for years and passed away in 1989 due to complications from pneumonia.

Not only has Jim played a Millionaire, he also played quite a number of other influencial roles.  To name a few, in  "M" (1951), he was the Mayor, in 1982 in "Slapstick of Another Kind", he played the President of the United States.  In the Magic Pony (1975), Jim was the Czar, in  "Yes, Virginia There Is A Santa Claus (1974 TV show), Jim was Santa Claus, but his most influential role was in "The Truth Of Truths" where Jim played God.

Thank you for reading, my friends.  I wish you much success.
