Subject: I remember seeing an "Andy Griffith Show" documentary, a crew member told of visiting McNear at the Actors Home in the end. He said McNear sat talking, with cigarettes burned to his fingers without notice. Sad.


Author:
McNear was only in his 50s, when he suffered stroke in AGS 3rd season, but later continued in seated scenes.
