FALLEN FUNNYMAN REMEMBERED
Don Knotts, who won five Emmys for his portrayal of fumbling deputy Barney Fife on The Andy Griffith Show and also is well remembered for playing Three's Company's hideously clad "lady killer" landlord, Mr. Furley died Friday of pulmonary and respiratory complications. He was 81. "Don was a small man... but everything else about him was large: his mind, his expressions," Andy Griffith tells the Associated Press. "Don was special. There's nobody like him." Knotts' half-century career also included the late-'50s variety show The Steve Allen Show (on which he was an original cast member) and such films as The Incredible Mr. Limpet and 1998's Pleasantville.
