    yeah, as a kid growing up in the south during the early '60s, he and that show were iconic.

    Two early Andy Grifftih performances are among my favorites - The naive, Christ-like Will Stockdale in "No Time for Sergeants" and the very mendacious and power-hungry "Lonesome" Rhodes in "A Face in the Crowd".

    The early black-and-white opening credits were spoken by an announcer rather than using title cards.

    Very sad. I'm 27, but I grew up watching it because I watched Nick at Night religiously.
