Profile Bio Text
Allan Melvin (February 18, 1923 – January 17, 2008) was an American character actor who appeared in several television shows and may be best remembered for his role as Sam Franklin, Alice`s boyfriend on The Brady Bunch. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Melvin`s family soon moved to New York City after his birth. Melvin eventually attended Columbia University. After graduation he served with the Navy and married his wife, Amalia, in 1943. While working at a job in the sound effects department of NBC Radio, he did a nightclub act and appeared and won on the Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts radio show. While appearing on Broadway in Stalag 17, he got his break into television by getting the role of Cpl. Henshaw on the popular The Phil Silvers Show program. TV fans of this era usually best remember his role as Henshaw, Sergeant Bilko`s right hand man on that show. "He was proudest of that show," Amalia Melvin said. "I think the camaraderie of all those guys made it such a pleasant way to work. They were so relaxed."[citation needed] During this period, in addition to his role on The Phil Silvers Show, Melvin was often cast in slightly loud, occasionally abrasive, but generally friendly second banana roles. Melvin was also adept at "tough guy" roles; in an example of his range as an actor, one episode of Sergeant Bilko featured Melvin doing a recognizable impersonation of Humphrey Bogart. In the 1960s, Melvin played Staff Sergeant Charley Hacker for four seasons on Gomer Pyle, USMC. He also made appearances as Rob Petrie`s old Army buddy, Sol Pomerantz, on the Dick Van Dyke Show. He also provided the voices of cartoon character Magilla Gorilla, the lion Drooper on The Banana Splits Adventure Hour, and Bluto on The All-New Popeye Hour. Melvin also made eight guest appearances on The Andy Griffith Show in eight different roles. Melvin is remembered for supporting roles on two popular 1970s sitcoms. He played Sam Franklin, the owner of a local butcher shop and boyfriend of Alice Nelson (the Bradys` housekeeper) on The Brady Bunch, and Barney Hefner, Archie Bunker`s neighbor and friend on All in the Family. In other contributions to 1970s pop culture, he was a Mel`s Diner patron on Alice and worked as a voice artist (under the name "Al Melvin"). He provided several characters` voices for the TV show H.R. Pufnstuf and the voice of Vultan, King of the Hawk Men on The New Adventures of Flash Gordon. Some of his most prolific work has been in television commercials, for products as diverse as Kellogg`s Sugar Frosted Flakes and Remington electric razors. In the latter commercial, he sang a few bars of Frank Loesser`s song "I Believe in You" with a modified lyric. In the early 1980s, Melvin appeared as a regular in Archie Bunker`s Place, a successor to All in the Family, in which he played a more important role. When this series ended in 1983, Melvin`s work was exclusively devoted to cartoon voice-overs. Melvin died of cancer on January 17, 2008.
