Bruce Bilson and Clint Howard join Neal for the last in this series of interviews. I encourage you to go back and listen/watch this series again because the information provided is a treasure for any fan of The Andy Griffith Show.
For those who may not know, Clint played the little cowboy with a peanut butter & jelly sandwich named “Leon” on The Andy Griffith Show and is the younger brother of Ron Howard who played “Opie.”
Bruce Bilson was assistant director of “The Andy Griffith Show” from 1960-62 and in this series of podcast episodes we’ll hear Neal Brower’s interview from 2015 when Mr Bilson returned to Mayberry Days to share his knowledge of Mayberry. This part of the interview has amazing information related to The Andy Griffith Show that you do not want to miss. The topics he and Clint will shed light on in this episode are: Ronnie Howard as an actor, listening is important, calling Ronnie to the set, Rance Howard and what he meant to his son’s, Ronnie as a “big brother,” Howard McNear, Hal Smith, and more!
Don’t miss the first series of episodes featuring Neal Brower’s interview with The Andy Griffith Show assistant director Bruce Bilson recorded during “Professor Brower’s Class” at Mayberry Days 2011. If you haven’t heard them, check them out starting with part 1 all the way through to part 4.
SPECIAL NOTE OF THANKS: Neil & Pat Coleman from the “Remembering Mayberry” chapter of TAGSRWC for providing the recording of Professor Brower’s Class from Mayberry Days 2015.
Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring Rob Reiner.
