We'd see him often at the Bel Age Hotel, always in the company of a beautiful, younger blonde.
Don Knotts was, and remains, the funniest actor in the history of television, creating the most memorable character in the greatest comedy series in the history of television.
Favorite episode: "Citizen's Arrest,"
season 4 (12.16.63),
featuring Jim Nabors.
(Prediction: He will get the greatest applause in the Academy Awards "In Memoriam" dead people segment.)
