Prolific Tv Director William Asher Dead At 90

William Asher, who has 52 credits as a director on his IMDb profile, 15 credits as a producer and 10 as a writer, has died in Palm Desert, CA of complications from Alzheimer's disease. His credits list may be a bit misleading inasmuch as in several instances they include entire series or numerous episodes. For example, he directed at least 100 episodes of I Love Lucy , 105 episodes of The Patty Duke Show and a whopping 254 episodes of Bewitched, which starred his wife, Elizabeth Montgomery. He also directed the series of "beach" movies starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello in the 1960s. For a time in the early '50s, he was directing two sitcoms simultaneously, Lucy and Our Miss Brooks , starring Eve Arden. He told Palm Springs Life magazine in 1999, "I was in my mid-twenties, unmarried, working on Our Miss Brook s and I Love Lucy, making $1,000 a week from both shows combined. I lived like a drunken sailor! ... You can believe I spent the money."
