Ladies and gentlemen. Earlier this week, the world lost entertainment legend Andy Griffith.
This week's Puzzle Corner is themed in his memory.

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?

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}
02. {Anita Corsaut, Hal Smith, Howard McNear, Jack Dodson}
03. {Jerry Van Dyke, Claudette Nevins, Parker Fennelly}
04. {Lee Meriwether, Ann Morgan Gullbert, Lori Rutherford, Marty McCall}
05. {Abby Dalton, Nick Nolte}
06. {Joel Higgins, Trish Stewart}
07. {David Ackroyd, Guy Boyd, Kevin Brophy}
08. {Linda Purl, Kene Holiday, Nancy Stafford}

We'll reveal all next weekend. But for now, let's cut the cake and open THE ANSWERS BOX as we reveal the results from THE ANNIVERSARY QUIZ from the June 30 Puzzle Corner.
And while I played fair and noted the studios were first, no one tumbled on to the fact that the questions were listed from oldest to youngest item.

01. Universal Studios is famous for its original monster movies and Woody Woodpecker, amongst other things, and started business in 1912, celebrating their 100th anniversary this year.
02. Paramount also started entertaining the world in 1912, and branched out into television production when it acquired the Desilu Studios (Star Trek, Mission: Impossible, etc) in the late 1960s.
03. The 1980s remake of Scarface starred Al Pacino in the title role. The original gangster movie was released in 1932, to celebrate its 80th anniversary this year!
04. Elmo Lincoln originated the role in the silent movie adaptation of Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs, but you couldn't hear the yell until the talking picture was made in 1932 too.
05. "We'll always have Paris." is a famous line from Casablanca, as that classic movie celebrates the 70th anniversary of its 1942 release this year.
06. "But Moses supposes erroneously." because "Moses Supposes (His Toe-is Are Roses)" during the great MGM musical Singin' In The Rain, which celebrates the 60th anniversary of its original 1952 release.
07. Doctor No was the first movie in the James Bond franchise, but is actually an adaptation of the sixth book by Ian Fleming, and was released in 1962, making the movie 50 years old this year, and it still holds up well on screen!
08. "Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit them, but remember: it's a sin..." To Kill A Mockingbird admonishes Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch in the 1962 motion picture.
09. "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse." vowed Marlon Brando in The Godfather, as that movie celebrates the 40th anniversary of its 1972 release this year.
