Known for her work as Alice on The Brady Bunch… the veteran actress has exited the planet.
- ABC’s Jukebox Jury
- Spokesmodel for the Ford Fairlane in the 1960s and 70s
- The John Forsythe Show
- And, of course, her role as Alice Nelson, maid for the Brady Bunch
My favorite performance by Ms. Davis, for which she won two Emmy® Awards (four nominations), is the role of Charmaine “Schultzy” Schultc in Love That Bob starring Bob Cummings. Below is an episode that features Dwayne Hickman (a/k/a Dobie Gillis), Rosemary DeCamp, and George Burns.
Rumor has it, Davis’ Schultzy character was the inspiration for Tony Stark’s assistant Pepper Potts in the Iron Man comics. The Schultzy version of Pepper premiered in Tales of Suspense Issue 45. Fortunately for Gwynneth Paltrow, the character’s appearance was changed in Issue 50.
Ann B. Davis was a very talented actress. She will be missed. May God rest her soul.
