Mizzy scored a total of 5 Knotts Movies including:

THE GHOST AND MR. CHICKEN

THE RELUCTANT ASTRONAUT

THE SHAKIEST GUN IN THE WEST

THE LOVE GOD

HOW TO FRAME A FIGG


What is your favorite or favorites and please share your memories of these films and scores. Mizzy and Knotts went together like Peanut Butter and Chocolate. Always wonderful and yummy.

I was always a big Don Knotts fan from his days as Barney Fife on THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW.
I remember seeing THE GHOST AND MR. CHICKEN as a kid and loving it, and being so scared by that Organ Theme. It really was frightening to me that the Ghost was in the Organ loft playing that spooky scary theme.

I always loved the main theme from THE RELUCTANT ASTRONAUT-67, so catchy and jolly, could hum it all day. In New York in the old days [70's] channel 9 [wor-tv] showed this movie dozens of times. I loved the film. Don Knotts was funny as hell here. But like a good JOHN HUGHES film it was not just funny but a film that touched your soul. When the father of Don Knotts played by [Arthur o Connell] finds out that his son was not a astronaut and a hero but just a janitor that scene I think really hit the emotional chords. Because many fathers always wished their sons could be more then they were. but he finds out his son is a loser like he was, that hurts.
