Ed Reimers was another relic of the golden age of TV - he was definitely the Allstate
Insurance pitchman for 22 years,Mr. Reimers was in the early 1950s a staff announcer
at Los Angeles station KTTV... Mr. Reimers was in one of the first videotaped TV commercials
for Allstate in September 1961,in Galveston Texas talking to Allstate policy holders whose
homes were destroyed by Hurricane Carla,he also was in Xenia Ohio in 1974 also talking
to Allstate policy holders whose homes were damaged in the Super Outbreak tornadoes...
Just like the prsent Allstate spokesman ,actor Dennis Haysbert,he relly made "You're in Good
Hands with Allstate" one of the country's best-known slogans.

Am saddened to hear of Ed Reimers' passing. I directed him in a number of Allstate commercials, including the very distinctive 1961 spots shot in Galveston in the aftermath of one of Texas's most disastrous storms, Hurricane Carla.

Ed was a great spokesperson and his work collected some Clio hardware for all of us on the Leo Burnett agency's Allstate team that year, including star copywriter Rudy Perz.
