Marlo Thomas Celebrates Her Father's Influence

Just in time for Father's Day, Marlo Thomas shared this touching tribute video below to her father.

Talent runs in the family because her father, Danny Thomas, was a comedian and an actor, best known for his role in the television sitcom, "Make Room for Daddy" (also known as "The Danny Thomas Show").

In a blog posted Friday on The Huffington Post, she shared this piece of advice from her dad on how to succeed in the entertainment industry: 

"'You can never lie to the audience,' he'd tell me. 'They'll follow you down any yellow brick road as long as you don't lie to them. Once you go off that road, you've lost them.'"
