Richard O. Linke, Producer and Personal Manager of Andy Griffith, Dies at 98

16 June 2016 1:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Richard (Dick) O. Linke, who was the longtime personal manager of Andy Griffith in addition to producing “The Andy Griffith Show” and several of its spinoffs, has died. He was 98.

He died on Wednesday at his home in Hawaii, according to a release issued by Ohio University, Linke’s alma matter.

Linke moved to the New York City area in 1941. There he spent two years at the Associated Press before moving to the public relations firm Earle Ferris & Co., where he handled publicity for 40 radio stations. Soon after, he upgraded to a larger firm where his account included  “The Chesterfield Supper Club,” starring Perry Como.

Linke then switched over to Capitol Records where he worked with Nat King Cole, Mel Torme, Peggy Lee and bandleader Stan Kenton.

In 1953, Linke met Andy Griffith, who he began to personally manage. In 1959, Griffith and Linke moved to Los Angeles to produce “The Andy Griffith Show. »

Watch: 'Gremlins' Director Joe Dante Reflects on 'The Private Lives of Adam and Eve'

8 February 2016 2:19 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Albert Zugsmith’s 1960 film about a motley band of misfits transported back to the Garden of Eden plays like a sexploitation farce written by Rod Serling. The movie never lives up to the salacious possibilities of its title but with its wacky casting coups (including Mickey Rooney as the devil and Mamie Van Doren as Eve!), who can complain? Boasting a B-movie dream cast including Tuesday Weld and Mel Torme, it was written by Robert Hill, the scribe behind Zugsmith’s similarly gonzo "Confessions of an Opium Eater." »
