      As one of the most recognizable faces on television for more than two decades, actor-director Bill Bixby became associated with an admirable strength of character, not only in his roles, but in his personal life as well. As an actor new to Hollywood, he quickly picked up a number of small guest parts on series before landing his first starring role on the fantasy sitcom "My Favorite Martian" (CBS, 1963-66) opposite Ray Walston as the titular alien. He also appeared in several films in the mid-1960s, including the Elvis Presley musical-comedy "Speedway" (1968), before starring on the endearing family series "The Courtship of Eddie's Father" (ABC, 1969-1972). From there Bixby went on to the short-lived, yet fondly remembered adventure series "The Magician" (NBC, 1973-74). By this time he was also working regularly as a director on such projects as the miniseries "Rich Man, Poor Man - Book II" (ABC, 1976-77). His most recognizable role, however, was as Dr. David Banner on "The Incredible Hulk" (CBS, 1978-1982). When he publicly announced his battle against prostate cancer in the early 1990s, it came as no surprise to anyone that Bixby chose to live his final years just has he had his entire life - with optimism, courage and dignity.
