Three Men and a Baby was a classic film for many reasons. We saw Tom Selleck as someone other than Thomas Magnum, we saw Steve Guttenberg outside of the Police Academy world, and we caught Ted Danson away from the Cheers set.
The movie won a People's Choice Award for "Best Comedy Motion Picture," and 31 years later it still holds up.
Guttenberg was notably absent in Hollywood after the film came out, taking a step away from fame.
“You gotta remember, I left home at 17. So I missed a great deal of my own growing up,” he told The AV Club. “I missed so many things with my family. I’d become everything I ever wanted to be…But I wanted to just be a little closer to my family…And I decided I’d like to work when I want to work…So I did theater that I really wanted to do and I did some small independent movies that I really wanted to do and I wrote and I painted and I got to see my parents all the time.”
But Guttenberg's disappearance was not the biggest story to emerge after Three Men and a Baby was released. Fans who watched closely spotted what they believe to be a ghost in the background of one of the scenes.
Dubbed the "ghost boy," people had a lot of theories surrounding the mysterious figure. Now, 31 years later, Tom Selleck finally explained what happened.
