Darren McGavin and Don Knotts

Isn't it amazing that Darren McGavin and Don Knotts who both starred in the Disney movie "No Deposit, No Return" died on the same weekend? Of course, both stars had been in and went on to do greater things, but it almost seems like they worked together at that time kind of like the mid-point of their careers.

McGavin of course had previously been in "The Delicate Delinquent" taking over the Dean Martin role in the first Jerry Lewis solo vehicle and also was "The Night Stalker". Afterwards, he was best known as "the old man" in "The Christmas Story".

Knotts was on "Steve Allen" and in "The Andy Griffith Show" previously and a number of silly 60s movies and then appeared as Ralph Furley in "Three's Company" afterwards.
