Courage had a long and distinguished career in both motion pictures and television, and there's no better way to tell it than to watch the amazing documentary (written and edited by Tim Grant Engle and produced by Bob Klein) made a couple of years ago to celebrate Alexander Courage's achievements and presented at the first Malibu Celebration of Film in 2005. Hosted by John Williams, a frequent Courage collaborator, it's a delightful and informative look back at an impressive body of work. The doc is available in four parts on YouTube, but we'll embed them here for instant viewing. Also highly recommended is a five-part interview with Alexander Courage from the Archive of American Television which is also available on YouTube, starting with Part One here.
And so we begin with the first part of the Alexander Courage tribute documentary:

And here is the Conclusion:
What an amazing career. Hollywood will certainly miss Alexander Courage.
