What I learned from Andy Griffith: Ron Howard shares memories of Andy Griffith and professional and life lessons learned from him.
He proved hour by hour, episode by episode that creativity and neurotic angst were in fact not inexorably linked. He led by example and we demonstrated that a cast and company could play practical jokes on one another, laugh ‘til they cried and still get 12 pages of the script shot every day while producing a No. 1-rated show.
