YESTERDAY was a sad day in TV-land. Barney Fife, aka Don Knotts, passed away at the age of 81. Besides the Andy Griffith show he also made several movies. NO TIME FOR SARGEANTS, circa 1954, starred Don Knotts plus Andy Griffith as the dumb but smart country boy who gets drafted. In this movie Don played an Army psychologists who’s job was to test the recruits. The scene where he’s testing Andy is truly comedy gold.
Don died very famous but fame on Earth doesn’t necessarily translate to a walk with God. It would be nice to know that Don Knotts came to know and love the living God; but we don’t hold that most vital information.
Barney - RIP
