Heads up! Don Knotts marathon on AMC now.
Ha, I'll always remember him as Mr. Furley, the whacky landlord.
Not a big Don Knotts fan.
He was very good on "The Andy Griffith Show".
Other than that . . . . just didn't watch his stuff.
Same for the guy (can't remember his name) that was on "Three's Company". Just not that entertaining.
Well, we should all carry our bullet in our pocket.
The Incredible Mr. Limpet and
The Ghost and Mr. Chicken were great movies when I was a kid.
Atta boy Luther !!!
If you are talking about John Ridder, I think he got better with age. He was very good in 7 rules to date my daughter.
No, Don Knotts was one of two that played John Ritter's landlord
Incredible Mr. Limpet is a great movie for those that haven't seen it. Dons character is mostly animated so you only get his voice.
I loved everything Don K notts had out on the screen. His later years he went blind and turned into a recluse.
Serious question... It was always rumored that he was gay. Is that true?
That's him. John Ritter.
Never did think he was funny.
Others that "don't do anything for me" include:
Hell yeah! Mr. Limpet, FTW...
Yes, Don was always a happy guy.
Don was one of the all-time greats.
He still makes me laugh to this day.
I think you are thinking of Jim Nabors, the guy that played Gomer Pyle.
I forgot about that movie. Good movie.
He MADE the Andy Griffith Show in my opinion. After he left, it just wasn't as entertaining to me. As far as Incredible Mr. Limpet and The Ghost and Mr. Chicken goes.....great films at that time. Made me laugh.
I read that Andy was originally supposed to play the buffoon, but when he saw Don Knotts' screen test, he deferred the role to him and took the straight man role. If that's true, that's a pretty big person IMHO and it certainly made the show.
The Andy Griffith Show became a lame excuse for a comedy after Knotts left....he WAS the draw, and Griffith knew it.
Interviewing Andy G., he always gave credit to Dons' sense of comic timing, had 'em in stitches on the set, and he would many times defer to Don as far as the comedy content of the show.
Don Knotts was truly a comic genius, but at the time of his hey-days, he was under-appreciated, and thus, never got the kind of movies he wanted to try his craft in.
1-2-3- Ime out...
