20/25. And I think I've been watching too much Murder, She Wrote. I got to the question about Julie Adams and wondered "What the hell was Eve Simpson doing in Mayberry?".

Andy should have married southern bell Peggy McMillen, so much prettier than Helen Krupp and a better personality, plus her daddy was rich, a definite win win situation.

That kid who played Aneta Corsault’s little brother, Danny, was probably the worst child actor, in the history of Hollywood!
