This prank he played on Barney is the best. Always cracks me up.

The Andy Griffith Show is the greatest show ever.

I always laugh when morans say Arrested Development or some shiat. Who is going to be watching that decades from now? Nobody.

Weak greenlight. Real weak.

cirby: If you haven't seen "A Face in the Crowd", you'll probably get a chance this week.

It's not the Andy Griffith you normally think of... and it'll sure make you think twice about some politicians and showbiz types you currently like.


Henry Fonda had a similar type movie with Once Upon a Time in the West. It's weird seeing him as a villain.

Raheem Abdul Mohammed knows his pain.

I'm approaching 34 and I still stop and watch Andy Griffith if I find it while channel surfing. And then I turn off the TV when it's over, because I can't handle "reality" TV or Honeymooners remake #4,592,105.

Posthumously named, now.

damn you, my first one was rejected for being too large, like my ego


You know, there were only two pics of this after a quick GIS and I instinctively went with the smaller one thinking the other would be too large. As I was hotlinking it I even said "somebody tried to link to that pic and they're going to be pissed".

The man single-handedly "humanized" the face of law enforcement. He was the Sheriff who could be your neighbor. Laid back and peaceful, he was the saving grace to Barney Fife's bungling heavy-handedness. Law Enforcement has been over 50 years undoing the damage he's done to their street cred.

drumfreek: astro716: I bet the cause of death involves Aunt Bea's canned tomatoes.

Do you mean her kerosene cucumbers?



The kerosene schtick was a carry-over from No Time for Sergeants in which he explained his immunity to commercial boose was from having grown up on his pappy's moonshine of grain alcohol flavoured with kerosene.

I watched "A Face In The Crowd" very recently, and there is a very interesting political subtext to a key part of the film that is eerily relevant today.

When Rhodes, at the behest of the sponsor's CEO, gets involved with a Conservative senator who is in the middle of a faltering presidential campaign. There's a sequence where Rhodes has the senator on his show and the topic of discussion is how awful social security is. It was a very interesting aspect of the film, considering it was made in 1957 and now, 50+ years later, we still have Conservative politicians wanting to get rid of it.

The film is an eerie predictor of the media environment we have now, and is one of Griffith's most memorable performances. Plus it has a young, nubile Lee Remick in some very revealing (for 1957) outfits!

Its gotta be hard for Ron Howard as the youngest actor on the show. He has watched them all pass.

One of the best movies ever made is A Face In The Crowd. And it so happens it will be shown on TCM this Thursday afternoon.

lunchinlewis: UNC_Samurai: He got his start playing Sir Walter Raleigh in the Lost Colony outdoor drama:

Ha, I remember being on a ferry ride through Albemarle Sound and they came over the loud speaker and mentioned we were passing his house, right on the water. I guess he settled right around there.


He loved his home and the Lost Colony play. He has been financing it for years.

I think I'm gonna' go home, have me a little nap, and then head over to Thelma Lou's and watch a little TV.


Be sure to stop by Floyd's barber shop and get a trim before heading to Thelma Lou's. You will want to look nice.

and subby can jump in a lake. I watched the "Andy Griffith Show" when it was on prime time TV. I would rather watch reruns of that for the 10th time than some of the crap that passes for TV these days. Yeah, get off my lawn!

No, sadly, they'll complain about how he was in favor of health care reform and how he criticized the Bush Administration about the Patriot Act.

Well, I used to have a soft spot for "Sheriff Taylor", but after the Obamacare debacle was passed with Andy Griffith leading the cheering for it, I saw a different person.

Griffith was a total communist and hated this country. He was a bitter resentful person as Libs usually are.

He was wasting air that someone else deserved.

I won't miss him in the least.

UDel_Kitty: I guarantee that TCM will rework the schedule to have an Andy Griffith tribute in some way.

They've "A Face in The Crowd" scheduled for this coming Thursday night as part of the Guest Programmer series. This month curated by Spike Lee (who, in addition to ...Crowd also chose Billy Wilder's The Big Carnival/Ace in the Hole", and Charles Laughton's The Night of the Hunter and Elia Kazan's On The Waterfront. )

As the Guest Programmer intros are taped months in advance*, they won't mention Mr. Griffith's passing.

As are all of TCM's intros.

Back in the Dark Ages, before there was cable TV, we had just the 3 major network stations to watch. The Andy Griffith Show was a staple (along with Gilligans Island) and I've seen every single Andy Griffith show many times. But what I remember most was the way my friends chihuahua would howl his fool head off when the whistling started. Every time. You could randomly whistle that tune anytime and the dog went bonkers.

/The episode where Barney got the surplus motorcycle was probably my favorite.
