Peter Baldwin began his long, illustrious entertainment career by signing a contract with Paramount Studios and started acting in films like the Oscar-winning "Stalag 17," "The Girls of Pleasure Island," and "Little Boy Lost" during the 1950s, though never in leading roles. This led to a career as a director in television. He made his directorial debut in 1964 on the wildly popular "The Dick Van Dyke Show." He continued to direct episodes for "The Andy Griffith Show," "Gomer Pyle, United StatesM.C.," and "The Partridge Family" during the 1960s. He continued to build an extensive resume in television during the 1970s by directing episodes of "The Brady Bunch," "The Bob Newhart Show," "Chico and the Man," and "Carter Country." His prolific run as a TV director did not end in the 1980s; he continued to direct episodes for some of America's most popular family series during the decade including "Full House," "ALF," and "The Wonder Years," which earned him an Emmy Award in 1989. Baldwin was finally able to enjoy the critical success he had striven for his entire career, propelling it further into the 1990s and 2000s. He continued to direct TV series like "Blossom," "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch," and the show that helped launch Shia LaBeouf's acting career, "Even Stevens."
