Ah, yes, he never was able to catch them Duke boys, but Rosco and his laconic basset hound Flash were always on the case.

Mr. Best was also the star of one of my all-time favorite Twilight Zone episodes, "Jess-Belle", opposite Anne Francis.

He was in a couple more TZ's besides that one, including "The Grave" which just ran this weekend on MeTV as part of "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan's "Gilligan's Island of MeTV" during which Vince selected the programming from episodes of his favorite shows which also included "Cheers", "The Honeymooners", and "Columbo".

Rest in peace, James Best.

I remember seeing him in a few late 70s Burt Reynolds films, also
