Was proud to get 12/12. My Uncle knew Frank Sutton, said he was a great guy. So sad he died at such a young age.

10/12. It would have been 11 except I forgot the back door pilot. Speaking of which, I'm surprised Sgt. Carter didn't recognize Andy Taylor in "Opie Joins The Marines" since they had already met in "Gomer Joins The Marines," and vice versa...

Just saw him along with Martin Milner in a movie, "Hurricane", an early 70's disaster movie, he played a man hosting a hurricane party with little regard to safety. Milner was the pilot of an Air Force Hurricane Hunter aircraft!
