Little is known about this charming lady. She has been referred to by fans a “Nice Dress Nellie” because in the episode that Barney arrests the whole town, “Andy Saves Barney’s Morale” as she is released from jail with the crowd, Andy acknowledges her and comments “Nice Dress, Nellie.”
According to assistant director Bruce Bilson, her was Marvel (her given name), but he did not give her full name. Marvel was a stand in for Don Knotts and Mr. Bilson picked her for the stand in job. She was seen over and over throughout The Andy Griffith Show series.
A listener to the podcast has a good theory and we need you to help us run this lead to ground.
Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Bob McQuain”
