The great comedic actor Don Knotts, best known for portraying Barney Fife on The Andy Griffith Show, left this world six years ago today (February 24, 2006) at the age of 81. In remembrance of the man who was a childhood favorite of mine, let’s take a look at two of the film roles he played in the 1970s.
First up we have this scene featuring Don Knotts and Tim Conway in Disney’s The Apple Dumpling Gang from 1975. A hugely successful film for Disney in the 70s. Yes, really!
Next, we have Knotts in a Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo TV spot from 1977. All hail the master!
