Allan Melvin Must Have Been A Very Rich Man
14 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

Before he was forever typecast as Sam the butcher on The Brady Bunch, Melvin did cartoon voices, yes, but played endless cops to robbers (to negative-types) on Andy Griffith and other shows, and likewise turned up in this episode of Gomer Pyle, essentially playing the same type.

The deal was to be a rough sergeant who sets Gomer up with a burlesque dancer by telling him she was a schoolteacher, AS A JOKE! Now let's all get ready for a good laugh! Of course, Gomer treats her 'like a real woman', she is flattered and doesn't follow thru with 'the gag'.

But the moment in the night club when Gomer is supposed to realize she is really a dancer, Melvin and his co-hort, Jensen, is it, look at Gomer peculiarly puzzled.

It's Jensen who really summarizes everything up perfectly, "why aren't we laughing?" Fortunately or unfortunately, Melvin is so over the top in these parts, it's all brushed off, but today, this would be our good old beloved 'bullying'.

Yet it is truly strange for such a minor, sidekick character like Jensen to conclude where everything stands in this rather silly episode.

I don't regard it as awful simply because of Jensen.
