Trivia (3)

Prolific television director who started out as a columnist for The Boston Evening Transcript.
Decided to stay in Hollywood after a sojourn in California and began his film career in the mailroom at MGM (according to his own website, because MGM needed a softball catcher for their team). Before long, he worked his way up to script supervisor. He left the studio in 1951 because he wanted to direct and television provided the best opportunities.
In a 2003 interview with the Television Academy Foundation, Martinson stated that he was forced to take on a small role of an executive in The Brady Bunch: The Cincinnati Kids (1973) when an actor didn't show up. It was the only time he acted onscreen.
