Life Story of Bob Denver

Bob Denver was attending college at Loyola-Marymount University, in Los Angeles, when he got into acting. At first, Denver wasn't sure he wanted to be an actor, but gradually gave in, deciding that's what he was going to do for a career. Before he became established, he worked as a mailman and teacher. He then got a screen test for the part of Maynard G. Krebs and to his surprise won the part. After four years on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis (1959), Denver got his most famous part of Gilligan, in Gilligan's Island (1964). After Gilligan's three-year run ended he did a few other television shows (including the Gilligan wannabe Dusty's Trail (1973)) and Broadway plays. On September 2, 2005, he died of complications related to cancer treatment at Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital in North Carolina. He had most recently lived in Princeton, West Virgina. He is survived by his wife Dreama Perry Denver, and four children.

James Stewart, Sandra Dee, Bob Denver, and Monica Moran in In Liebe eine 1 (1963)

In real life he is the exact opposite of the well-known inept and goofy characters he has portrayed on television.

The Gilligan/Skipper slapstick exchange were modeled after the comedy duo/icons of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.

Playing beatnik Maynard G. Krebs on the comedy series The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis (1959), his most enduring line from that series was his freaked-out exclamation "Work!?" whenever anyone mentioned the word within hearing distance.

Enjoyed going sailing in real life. For obvious reasons, however, he dreaded it when he had to rent a boat. People would say variations of the famous line from his show: "Going out for a three-hour tour, are you?".
