James Farentino Dead

Actor James Farentino who has held many television and film roles has died today a family spokesperson said.

February 24, 2006

Now, Don Knotts and I actually share one thing in common. In my case, I was the youngest child born nearly a full decade after the last one was born. Don Knotts was the last child born to William and Elsie Knotts on July 21, 1924, when Elsie was forty. And due to the stress of the birth, Don's father sustained a nervous breakdown because of it. To make matters worse, Don would spend the first thirteen years of his life afraid of his father. Due to his alcoholism and suffering symptoms of schizophrenia, Don's father would often terrorize him, even chasing after him with a knife. Don's father died in 1937. His older brother William would die four years later, in 1941. Don's mother would pass away in 1969 at the age of 84. After returning from the war and graduating from West Virginia University in 1948, Knotts had decided...

During this time, he also acted in a couple of Broadway performances and films including one stint in 1958 where he... Of course, you know that it would be because of Andy Griffith that Don Knotts would become a huge star, as Knotts was cast on "The Andy Griffith Show" playing the part of bumbling, yet kind-hearted deputy Barney Fife. Knotts played Barney Fife for the first five seasons of the show alongside Griffith and child actor Ron Howard - hmm. Anyway, back to Knotts. During the five years he played Barney Fife, Knotts enjoyed the experience. Initially, Griffith was supposed to be the comedic foil for Barney Fife, but audiences responded better when the situation was the other way around, so Barney Fife gradually became more comedic and funny as the show progressed. But at the conclusion of the show's fifth season in 1965, Knotts had believed that the fifth season would be the show's last, and he had started to look for other work. To Knotts' surprise, the show was renewed for another year (the show stayed on the air until 1968). But at that time, Knotts had already booked several film projects and he was tied up. Besides, when Knotts weighed the pros and the cons of it all,... Source: A POP CULTURE ADDICT'S GUIDE TO LIFE
