Fred M. Wilcox is such a solid name, it almost seems made up. But he is a real person. Aside from this, he directed Lassie Come Home (and other stuff, too.)

Fun fact! He is one of six children, and his father was married six times (twice to one woman). The six children are all from the first wife, though.

For a second I thought you were going to tell me that he was married six times and had one child with each woman! Haha.
