The Mayberry Man movie is just about to be released and it’s kind of amazing to me how many fans of The Andy Griffith Show still believe the movie is some type of remake of the series. As the title of this episode states, it is not a remake. This past weekend I spent a good deal of time on different social media sites talking with fans and trying to help them understand that the movie was made for Mayberry fans by Mayberry fans.
There’s no big “Hollywood” studio behind the movie precisely to avoid the filmmaker being told what could or could not be in the movie. Mayberry Man does its best to capture the spirit of what made The Andy Griffith Show so special. It doesn’t try to be a remake but rather tries to bring that feeling back to the viewer by telling a new story with roots in Mayberry. I hope fans will give it a chance.
We’ll also hear a poem from Ronnie Felker called “Floyd’s Barbershop” that I think you’ll enjoy. Ronnie is a Barney Fife tribute artist out of South Carolina.
This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Jonathan Hole.”
