Allan Melvin: 1922-2008

Allan Melvin, the prolific character actor best known in these parts as Sam the butcher on The Brady Bunch, passed away this week at the age of 84.

In addition to his time with the Bradys, Melvin had regular roles on such other TV classics as The Phil Silvers Show and All in the Family, played Al the plumber in Liquid-Plumr commercials for fifteen years, and was the voice of Magilla Gorilla and many other cartoon characters.

He was also in the original Broadway production of Stalag 17, but his only onscreen film role was in the Doris Day comedy With Six You Get Eggroll.
