DON KNOTTS BIOGRAPHY

The following biography is from Wikipedia.org “The Free Encyclopedia.”

 Bloodhound of the Law Buy this Tin Sign at AllPosters.com

Jesse Donald "Don" Knotts (born July 21, 1924) is an American actor. He was born in Morgantown, West Virginia. He served in World War II as an entertainer and received the World War II Victory Medal.

 

Knotts first gained exposure in 1956, after being a regular on the soap opera Search for Tomorrow from 1953 to 1955, on Steve Allen's variety show. He is remembered for appearing in Allen's mock "Man in the Street" interviews, always as a man obviously very nervous about being on camera. This fidgety, high-strung characterization would serve him well throughout his career.

 

Knotts is best known for his role as deputy Barney Fife on the American television sitcom The Andy Griffith Show, a portrayal that earned him five Emmy Awards. After leaving the series, Knotts starred in a series of film comedies: The Incredible Mr. Limpet (1964), The Ghost and Mr. Chicken (1966), The Reluctant Astronaut (1967), The Shakiest Gun in the West (1968) and The Love God? (1969).

 

In the 1970s, Knotts and Tim Conway starred together in a series of slapstick movies.

 

Knotts returned to television in the late 1970s, appearing as Ralph Furley on Three's Company. He also had a recurring role on Matlock, which starred his old friend Andy Griffith. He also appeared with Griffith in the 1986 made for television movie Return to Mayberry where he once again played Barney Fife.

 

In 1998, Knotts began a recent career comeback with his part as the TV repairman in Pleasantville.

 

[Added by PSP: In August 2005 his hometown of Morgantown, WV, had to cancel a celebration in honor of Don Knotts due to his experiencing a sudden illness.]

 

[Added by PSP: Don Knotts passed away in a Los Angeles hospitals on Friday, February 24th from pulmonary and respitory complications.  Mr. Knotts was 81.]
