Thanks Tony 😀 .....the old BWs are the last thing I see before nodding off to sleep each day.....last night`s fare featured a surly Darren McGavin as an old- time copper who "believes he can help a wayward youth just as a cop once did for him"

Love the B&W. I still watch the old B&W Andy Griffith shows. Once they went to color, lost Barney, .... IDK it just wasn't the same.

I`ve been watching some old tapes of the Dobie Gillis show while I eat lunch…..today,it was Rock-a-Bye-Dobie…..Episode 39 of season one……your old buddy Barney showed up along with the wonderful character actress Kathleen Freeman….this would have been shot in 1959,a year before Barney was deputized

nip IT

@john-barry Ah yes, the Dobie Gillis Show. Wasn't there a beatnik named "Maynard" or something like that? Corny, but I was just a kid and there wasn't much to choose from on TV back then. The Donna Reed Show, Father Knows Best, Leave it to Beaver.

"police cruiser is a 55 not a 57"   thanks Bob.....to one day become nit-less has long been my goal......this is easier to remedy than the suspension jobs you usually task me with Eat
