Q Did Bob Denver make any movies?
—Joel Gray, Charles City, Iowa

Yes, Denver had small roles in several movies, including For Those Who Think Young, Who's Minding the Mint? and The Sweet Ride, usually typecast as a comedic offshoot of the lovable goofball he played on Gilligan's Island from 1962 to 1966. His final movie appearance was in Back to the Beach in 1987. He died in 2005 from complications after surgery for throat cancer.
