Overview

After a whirlwind courtship, David Janssen married Ellie Graham on August 23, 1958. It was his first marruage, her third. She had two young daughters by her first marriages. DAVID JANSSEN was starring in 'RICHARD DIAMOND-Private Detective' on CBS Television. He was accepted as a client of Agent Abby Greshler, and he was destined for stardom. In 1962, Mr. Greshler negotiated a lucrative contract for David to star as 'Dr. Richard Kimble' in the Quinn Martin Productions, ABC Televison's new, ground breaking series, "THE FUGITIVE". The series became an instant hit and his career skyrocketed. Ellie was the perfect 'Hollywood Wife'. Then, without warning, at a small dinner party hosted by Dani and Buddy Greco to celebrate David and Ellie's Tenth Wedding Anniversary, David took Ellie out onto the balcony, presented her with a diamond encrusted bracelet and a Cartier watch and told her their marriage was over. A bitter divorce ensued, lasting two years.
'DAVID JANSSEN-MY FUGITIVE' is Ellie's intimate memoir of her life with and her undying love for the beloved Hollywood legend.

"David Janssen, My Fugitive" has been re-released by Michael Phelps (not the Olympic swimmer) and was co-written with Mr. Janssen's first wife Ellie. I remember the television show "The Fugitive" from my childhood and enjoyed catching a glimpse of what his life was life before and during that show. I knew that he had died young, but this book doesn't explain much as Ellie was no longer married to David at the time of his death. When reading this book, I can sense that Ellie still loved her ex-husband and it must have been hard to chronicle her relationship with him. It was a nice short trip down memory lane.
