Alan Reed Ben Ohmart. If you're not old enough to remember Falstaff on The Fred Allen Show, perhaps you recall Fred Flintstone from The Flintstones, that modern stoneage family. Alan Reed had created a rough draft,but this book padded it with reading of letters from Fred Allen (which could have cut way down-and I am a fan of Fred Allen), interviews of various people and even a full recording of the Flinstones' theme Wong.

Wow. What a talent. The man was truly a star,although he is not known to the general public. Listen to some of the radio shows listed,or catch Postman and you will see what i am talking about. Grab this one,QUICK.

This was a enjoyable read that told the story of Alan Reed, one of the greatest journeyman actors who never was a star in any conventional sense.

Reed started out in his native NYC. Originally he attended Columbia University's Journalism School, but the draw of the theater became too much and he followed his true calling. This book details his career thoroughly based on his own writings, supplemental writing and research from his co-author Ben Ohmart, and his son Alan Reed Jr. While Ohmart should be given his due for assembling a mountain of information about Reed's career and organizing everything in a cohesive order that gives this story a logical flow that makes sense and adds to its readability, it is Reed's own stories and correspondence that endear him to his reader. While it was the public Reed that entranced audiences, it was Teddy Bergman (Reed's birthname) that gave this story heart and soul.
Before I read this book, I knew who Reed was through the Fred Flintstone persona and appearances on tv and radio. I was a faithful listener of a guy named Chuck Schaden who had me hooked on a regular Saturday radio show called Radio Days Gone By. I soon realized that Reed was one of the major players in radio purely on the basis of his prolific appearances on shows broadcast during the Golden Age of Radio.
What appealed to me about this book was its absolute thoroughness in profiling this actor, the wealth of factual and anecdotal information it contained, and the fact that it delved into the personal side of Reed's career and Teddy's personal life. Through it all, I never got a sense that Reed was anything but a nice man and a good father and husband. I appreciated his devotion to his family and what seemed to me an almost unrelenting work ethic that kept him working until death took him. On top of everything, Ohmart indexed all of Reed's performances which was a sizeable effort. Beyond the volume of his work, there was a lot of variety. Reed was a versatile and extremely capable actor.
As a pioneer in both the arenas of tv and radio, this book pulls in quite a cast of characters which include other people I have come to admire such as the incomparable Mel Blanc, J. Carroll Naish, and Fred Allen. This is a great book and an enjoyable one. I was glad to see Reed's story come to print through the efforts of Ben Ohmart and the cooperation of Alan Reed Jr.

Alan Reed left an indelible mark in the world of cartoons, giving voice to the unforgettable Fred Flintstone. The Flintstone's remain today one of the most popular cartoons in American television history. They have sold everything from toys to lunchboxes to DVD sets of the wonderful episodes that won the heart of America. Reed earlier carved a niche in radio, and worked with the legendary Fred Allen. It is a wonderful journey to take learning of the actor himself, and the many stars who shined in his sphere. Complete with rare photographs, this is a must read for fans of the Flintstone's, old time radio, and the Golden Age of Hollywood.

This is as much an autobiogrophy of Alan Reed as much as it is an account of one of the most recognized voices in the history of TV & radio. Anyone who gew up watching "The Flintstones" knows the voice of Fred Flintstone & was as much a part of his personality as the animation that was used to create the character on paper. The book contains all of Alan's credits in radio, tv & film. Almost 55 pages worth! Other than Fred Flintstone I only new of his work on The Fred Allen Show & The Life of Riley but boy there are tons more I didn't know about! given that his real name was Herbert Theodore Bergman there are a lot of letters, signed photos & other instances were he is referred to as Teddy. He talks at length about some of the biggest stars of his era some in great detail. i alwasy wondered who came up with YABBA DABBA DOO..well you'll find out in this book. A great deal of thanks needs to be made to Ben Ohmart for his passion in wanting alan's tory in print, Bill Marx (Harpo's son) who helped Ohmart get in touch with Alan Reed ,Jr. to agin access to his father's writings, photos and letters. Anyone who is a fan (like I Am) and wants to read a great book like this one Bear Manor Media has what your looking for and more so. They keep alive the memories of great character actors, voice actors & radio & tv shows before they are long & forgotton about by furture generations. I never tire of reading them & often refer to them when I find a new program or hear a new old time radio show for the first time. This book is one of the best amongst them.

This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. Alan Reed, being a very creative man, had a warm and entertaining way of writing. He didn't finish his life story, though, so co-author Ben Ohmart did, with the help of Reed's family. There are many surprises in it, too. Reed might be the only man who was ever named after his son! Also in this book are rare photos and more of his writings - letters, essays, and poetry. Reed's impressive list of credits is there, and just the radio shows alone, with a brief synopsis of each, fill 50 pages! I hope you'll love this book as much as I did.

Another fantastic book in the voice-actor series from Bear Manor. This time around, author Ben Ohmart takes you behind the microphone with the late, great Alan Reed- best known as the voice of Fred Flintstone.
In this informative retrospect- Ohmart shares the story of Reed, his life and his colorful career. I found the book fascinating and very well written. Sprinkled throughout are images that are fun to see and any fan of Reed's work will enjoy this keepsake memento- that is a true tribute to a man who made the world laugh and cry through his amazing voice and talents.
