Peter Tewksbury (March 21, 1923 – February 20, 2003) was an American film and television director who directed Sunday in New York with Jane Fonda in 1963, the Father Knows Best TV series (131 episodes, 1954-1960), and a pair of Elvis Presley movies. He directed the entire first season of the television situation comedy My Three Sons and also frequently served as a producer and writer for the series. He also created It's a Man's World (TV series), and collaborated with J.D. Salinger on a film adaptation of the author's “For Esmé With Love and Squalor,” which was never produced after a casting dispute between the two men.[1]
