Amid all my Stanley Roper talk comes word that his successor as the landlord on "Three's Company" has died.
Don Knotts was the first celebrity I ever met, at the first and only movie premiere I ever attended (got Tim Conway's autograph, too). My dad's company invested in two little-seen comedies starring the TV greats: "The Private Eyes" and "The Prize Fighter." I'd wager that everyone reading this missed my movie debut, as a young boxing fan in the latter film. I got to wear knickers!
R.I.P. Mr. Furley!
