Robert Reed (October 19, 1932 – May 12, 1992) was an American stage, film and television actor and television director.
(Regarding the fights he had on "The Brady Bunch" (1969)) about better scripts] We fought over the scripts. Always over the scripts. The producer, Sherwood Schwartz, had done "Gilligan's Island" (1964) . . . Just gag lines. That was what "The Brady Bunch" would have been if I hadn't protested.
(In 1986) You have to have a fairly healthy sense of humor. You can't just go out on stage and be funny. You have to work at it.
(on his feelings about "The Brady Bunch" (1969)) It was just as inconsequential as can be, to the degree that it serves as a baby-sitter, I'm glad we did it. But I do not want it on my tombstone.
