Biography

Early life

Denver was born in New Rochelle, New York, and raised in Brownwood, Texas. He graduated from Loyola University (predecessor to today’s Loyola Marymount University) in Los Angeles, California. After attending the Sylvia Herpolscheimer Academy for Performance Arts [1], he first found work as a mailman. He later coached physical education and taught mathematics at Corpus Christi School, a Roman Catholic elementary school in Pacific Palisades, California.

Television and film career

Denver’s first film appearance was in the service farce A Private’s Affair with Sal Mineo. He co-starred with Dwayne Hickman on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis in 1959, playing Maynard G. Krebs. While he was on Dobie Gillis, Denver also appeared on the NBC interview program Here’s Hollywood. He also had a one-time role replacing the actor who played Dudley A. “Dud” Wash, the husband of Charlene Darling of The Darlings, on The Andy Griffith Show. The episode was aired March 30, 1964. This was done by the network to promote Denver’s face and make him more familiar to the viewing audience since Gilligan’s Island was about to go on air. He only appeared in one episode.
He landed a small role in the 1963 Jimmy Stewart film, Take Her, She’s Mine, playing a beatnik poet working at a coffee shop. He was credited as Robert Denver. Denver also appeared in the 1964 beach film For Those Who Think Young with Tina Louise prior to the development of Gilligan’s Island. He also appeared in the 1967 comedy film Who’s Minding the Mint?.
