Peter Deuel (Pete Duel) in ‘Generation’
Generation aka A Time for Caring; also aka A Time for Giving [UK] (U.S. Theatrical release: 12/16/69) … as Walter Owen
Advertising executive Jim Bolton is shocked when his daughter (played by Kim Darby) calls to share the news she has just gotten married. Insisting on visiting, he is staggered to find her about to give birth — at home in a New York loft with only Walter (played by Pete), her nonconformist husband, to preside over the delivery. At first, Jim (David Janssen) doubts Walter’s competence to oversee the precarious event without medical assistance, but finally relents when he calls in an obstetrician friend to observe and is assured that Walter seems well prepared. Pete and Kim Darby fell in love during the movie’s filming. This was also the film in which Peter Deuel changed his name to Pete Duel.
