For more than 50 years, Andy Griffith shared his incredible talent with the world through his music, movies, and TV shows. Well before The Andy Griffith Show where he played a small town Sherriff, Griffith was already popular in Hollywood for starring in Elia Kazan’s film A Face in the Crowd.
The 1960’s were perhaps the highlight of his career, particularly due to his role as Andy Taylor. In 1968, the show made Number 1 on the Nielson ratings for the first time since it began showing on CBS. Consequently, the show earned spinoffs and remained on TV for several years.
