Actor Ernest Borgnine (McHale's Navy, the television version of Airwolf, and other TV and film  productions) passed away this past weekend, so this week's Puzzle Corner is in his memory with this brief quiz.

01. Borgnine actually served in the United States Navy until the end of World War 2. What was his real life Naval ranking?
02. What was McHale's rarely used first name?
03. What was McHale's naval rank on television?
04. For what did Borgnine win an Academy Award?
05. Ernest Borgnine reteamed with his former McHale Navy costar Tim Conway to do what in 1999?

We'll reveal all next weekend, but for now, let us solemnly peek into THE ANSWERS BOX, as we reveal the results from our memorial Andy Griffith Puzzle Corner of July 7.

Practically everybody remembers Mayberry first and foremost when thinking about Griffith. But do you know on what show Andy Griffith appeared in character as Sheriff Taylor first?

An episode of The Danny Thomas Show ("Danny Meets Andy") served as a backdoor pilot for Griffith's series.

Believe it or not, Andy Griffith did a lot more in his career than just Andy Taylor and Ben Matlock.
Each subset below contains a list of costars that appeared with Griffith in the past.
Can you name each production?

01. {Patricia Neal, Walter Matthau, Tony Franciosa, Lee Remick} = A Face In The Crowd, 1957 movie
02. {Anita Corsaut, Hal Smith, Howard McNear, Jack Dodson} = The original Andy Griffith Show, 1960-1968
03. {Jerry Van Dyke, Claudette Nevins, Parker Fennelly} = The Headmaster, 1970 TV series

04. {Lee Meriwether, Ann Morgan Gullbert, Lori Rutherford, Marty McCall} = The New Andy Griffith Show, 1971 series
05. {Abby Dalton, Nick Nolte} = Adams of Eagle Lake, 1975 series
06. {Joel Higgins, Trish Stewart} = Salvage 1, 1979 series
07. {David Ackroyd, Guy Boyd, Kevin Brophy} = The Yeagers, 1980 series
08. {Linda Purl, Kene Holiday, Nancy Stafford} = Matlock, 1986-1995 series
