"He's best remembered as Sheriff Taylor, but Andy Griffith's great gift to the world was 'A Face a the Crowd' - a film that completely retains its bite in this era of packaged political corn pone. I first saw Andy doing standup at the Raleigh Little Theater in the early fifties. My father got him a gig playing opposite my mother in a convention sketch for the North Carolina Automobile Dealer's Association. Then he hit Broadway and became a star. He was a good liberal Democrat (somewhat to the horror of my family) and that sweetness and generosity shone through everything he ever did."
