Andy Griffith Quiz: How well do you know his other work?

The stuff that's not The Andy Griffith Show or Matlock

10 out of 10. But #10 almost threw me because I remembered it as something about Cade. Cades country or something like that. He drove a bronco or jeep.

"Cade's County" was a one season 1971 show starring Glenn Ford.

6/10, and guessed. He was in a tv movie where he hunted some guy for sport. He was also in the film 'Rustler's Rhapsody' where he played the bad guy.

10 for 10, but I will confess to a lot of educated (and lucky!) guesses. I probably only *really knew* 3 or 4 of them.
