I feel like a part of me died.
He and I were opposites on the screen and in real life in many ways, because I was an extension of Dobie and he was an extension of Maynard.
I get so many requests for these episodes on VHS and DVD. Unfortunately, I do not have any episodes available at this time. The rights for the series are currently held by both 20th Century Fox (the studio that produced the show) and the Estate of Max Shulman (the creator of the series).
I have always loved art and architecture, in fact, that has always been my first love, never acting or film work.
I would never recommend it. I have a six-year-old son who wants to be an actor (as well as a vet and an artist) but I would not encourage it.
Breaking the fourth wall and having Dobie talk to the audience was ground-breaking.
I was always very shy but my older brother, Darryl, was working and my mother couldn't leave me home alone so I was dragged along to the studio.
To be honest, our 6-year-old son, Albert, usually makes the choice. Right now the Partridge Family and Brady Bunch are big around here.
Cary Grant was another gentleman who I saw around the lot. Wallace Berry had a reputation for being gruff but he was very nice to me.
Suddenly I was on stage.Looking out into the sea of screaming excited teens, I thought for a fleeting moment that maybe I had been too hard on myself, maybe I was just as much a teen singing sensation as this slick Avalon fellow.
Little did I know then that I would be tied to that role the rest of my life!
I feel like a part of me is gone, too. We were a comedy team and I was proud to be his straight man. He was a wonderful comedian. Underrated, really.
I just loved him. He was wonderful. One of my dear, dear friends. I feel like a part of me died.
In all the time I knew Bob, personally and professionally, we never had a harsh word.
He had a wonderful sense of comedy, great timing, and he had sweet personality on the screen. I loved working with him. I was proud to be his straight man.
