Don Knotts in “The Reluctant Astronaut” (1967) – reviewed by George

This is a funny movie, but again there’s that frustration with a major character. Royal Fleming (Don Knotts) finds it absolutely impossible not to bury the lead. If he wants to say, “I’m not really an astronaut; I’m a janitor”, … Continue reading
