Goofs

At the start of the show, Andy explains to Barney that an armed car carrying $7 million in gold bars will be driving through Mayberry en route from the Denver Mint (Colorado) to Fort Knox, Kentucky. Look at a map and try to figure out how this truck could be driving through North Carolina on it's way to Kentucky. It's not even plausible from any logical trip. See more »

A Classic Episode With No Laugh Track....
10 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a classic episode. What a Great One! I just noticed after seeing it on DVD that there is no laugh track. I was wondering if this was an experiment? It is a fairly dramatic episode for the sitcom, so maybe they thought that they'd try it with no canned laughter like usual. This show was never filmed with an audience anyway.

Interesting....

And it was neat to see three members of the Howard family in one show--Ron, Rance, His Dad, and lil' brother Clint.

Another beautiful DVD transfer. There are so many great old shows coming out on DVD from studios like Paramount--This one was originally Desilu, like Dick Van Dyke, Star Trek and many more until 1968 when Desi and Lucy sold out to Paramount Studios, which was right next door.
