Clip-filled tribute to a master character actor November 2, 2011
By R. Nelson
A lively tribute to the life of character actor and cartoon voice Alan Reed, spiced by background music and audio clips of radio/TV shows and movies. Most of it is narrated by Alan Reed Jr. (whose father had died in 1977) but there are some bits spoken by Reed himself from 1970s interviews. Joe Barbera is heard commenting on Alan's work with The Flintstones (as Fred) and the creation of the series. Bill Marx narrates some letters Fred Allen wrote to Reed.
Teddy Bergman, later to become Alan Reed, was determined to be a stage actor, including a job in Oklahoma City and a dramatic academy. He found his way into what we now call old time radio (comedy/drama)
Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist. However, his career has taken him into every aspect of show business, including stage, film and television, as a producer, director, writer, actor, and even cartoonist.
Not content to hide behind his microphone, Bevilacqua will be seen acting in the upcoming feature films: "The Green Blade Rises" directed A.J. Edwards, "The Fly Room" directed by Alexis Gambis, "Cold in July" directed by Jim Mickle, and "Hits" directed by David Cross. He will soon be portraying WWII British General Bernard Montgomery in the History Channel miniseries "The War"
Joe Bev can do hundreds of voices, dialects and impressions. For the upcoming movie "The Fly Room," he not only portrayed the on screen character of Uncle Dwight, he was personally commissioned by the director Alexis Gambis, to act as vocal coach to the cast during the entire shoot and wrote, produced and voiced a number of audio sound beds in the style of old time radio for use in the film.
