Andy Griffith and Don Knotts first met on Broadway in the 1950s. When Andy moved to Hollywood to film a TV pilot for a comedy about a small-town sheriff, Don called to ask if AndyÃ¢ÂÂs sheriff could use a deputy. The friendship and comedy partnership between Sheriff Andy Taylor and Deputy Barney Fife ignited The Andy Griffith Show, elevating the folksy television sitcom into a timeless study of human friendship. Together, they created a program with a uniquely small-town dynamic that captured the hearts of Americans across the country who watched these two men rocking on the front porch, meditating about the pleasure of a bottle of pop.
But behind this sleepy charm, de VisÃÂ©Ã¢ÂÂs exclusive reporting Ã¢ÂÂcaptures the complexity of both men and the intimacy of their friendship with extreme detail and sensitivityÃ¢ÂÂ (Publishers Weekly), from unspoken rivalries, passionate affairs, unrequited loves, struggles with the temptations of fame, and friendships lost and regained. Although Andy and Don ended their Mayberry partnership in 1965, they remained best friends for the next half-century.
Written by Don KnottsÃ¢ÂÂs brother-in-law, Andy and Don is Ã¢ÂÂa rewarding dual biography that is also a lively look inside the entertainment industry in the latter half of the twentieth centuryÃ¢ÂÂ (News & Observer). Entertaining and provocative, it Ã¢ÂÂcaptures a golden moment in modern Americana. YouÃ¢ÂÂll not only return again to Mayberry, youÃ¢ÂÂll feel as though youÃ¢ÂÂve never leftÃ¢ÂÂ (Tom Shales, Pulitzer PrizeÃ¢ÂÂwinning television critic).
