Andy Griffith Survived Many Life Challenges And Still Remains A Hollywood Legend
June 15, 2018
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.
