Anthony's note, in full: "Have enjoyed The Andy Griffith show since the very beginning. Wish there were more shows as good as yours. Hope to be viewing it for many years to come. Would love to have a picture - if not, how and where to get one." Bavier's name written (probably in Anthony's hand) at lower margin. The Andy Griffith Show was televised on CBS from 1960-1968. Andy Griffith starred as Sheriff Andy Taylor of Mayberry, North Carolina and Bavier (1902-1989) portrayed his Aunt Bea Taylor, who lived in to help care for his six-year-old son, Opie (played by actor and future Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard). The 249 episodes filmed are still shown in syndication, and Bavier reprised her role as Aunt Bea in Mayberry R.F.D. (1968-1970). Stage, screen and television actress Frances Bavier (1902-1982) had a successful career on Broadway before making her feature film debut in 1951 (The Day the Earth Stood Still). She continued to appear in films until 1974 (Benji), but she is best known for her television work, appearing on several TV series, including anthologies, dramas, Westerns and sit-coms, as well as starring as Aunt Bea. Vertical fold, not at Bavier's writing. Slightly soiled. Fine condition..
