Aunt Bee is called for jury duty and despite her misgivings, goes to the courthouse to see if she will be called. She finds herself on a jury for the trial of Marvin Jenkins who is accused of breaking and entering and stealing a TV from a local store. Jenkins story is that he brought a TV to the store for repairs and found the back door open. When the jury retires to consider the verdict, the other 11 jurors - all men - vote to find him guilty and Aunt Bee is the only hold out. She simply isn't sure and is not convinced that Marvin is guilty. After several days, they finally declare themselves a hung jury, with a good deal of frustration from several quarters being directed at Aunt Bee. Andy however manages to solve the case in a few minutes. Written by garykmcd

"Marvin Jenkins"
19 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This little gem of an episode is great in a lot of ways. 1st of all it guest starred none other than the great Jack Nicholson Pre-"Easy Rider", in the role of the accused Marvin Jenkins. This was Jack's second appearance on the Andy Griffth show. I liked this one way better than the his 1st one which was the 7th season episode 10: "Opie Finds a Baby". In that one he played the baby's father Mr.Garland but I felt it was too brief and he didn't have a chance to really impress. In this episode however, he has a little more screen time and shines much better. Who would have thought back then this young bit player would one day become one of Hollywood's greatest stars? Right on Jack! :)
