MrBill..you’ve never heard of ‘Destry Rides Again’? There were numerous ‘Destry’ movies; 1932 “Destry Rides Again” w/Tom Mix, “Destry Rides Again” w/James Stewart, 1939, “Destry”w/Audie in 1954, and then there was a tv series “Destry” w/ John Gavin, ran a few weeks in 1964. My favorite is the James Stewart....Have a good day...✌🏼

Enough already with the Andy Griffith trivia. You've been doing that to death for weeks. Please move on to other shows in your quizzes and stories.

Oh yeah another thing.Is it just me or does Don Knotts look a little like a young Frank Sinatra in his high school year book photo?

On TAGS he was told he looked like Frank Sinatra.

I thought of Harry Connick, Jr., who I think resembles Sinatra, especially his singing voice.
