Andy Griffith’s ‘No Time For Sergeants’ at the Tiger Theatre

We continue Who Cares If We’re Reaching Andy Griffith Auburn Connection Memorial Tuesday with movie listings from the July 30, 1958 issue of The Auburn Plainsman, specifically the ads for Griffith’s screwball classic No Time For Sergeants. If you haven’t seen it, as the saying goes, you’re doing it wrong.

Auburn students had several chances to do it right that week: July 30-31 at the Martin Drive-In in Opelika or the Aug. 1 Saturday Late Show (and the following Five Big Days) at The Tiger Theatre.

I bet Carol Meadows saw it.

For my AU graduation gift, my grandparents took me to Mt. Airy, Andy Griffith’s hometown and a loose template for Mayberry. We did the Hellooo? bit to a busted Dairy Queen intercom somewhere in Georgia. We still talk about it. We still laugh about it.

Bama students vandalized their own campus with Auburn graffiti before the 1953 Iron Bowl

In 1953, a Bama student, either out of self-loathing, or in an attempt to rile his team to victory in the upcoming Iron Bowl, painted not just random doors and alleys of his own campus with Auburn slogans, but Denny freakin' Chimes. So when someone tries to stop you from relieving yourself on the Saban statue at this year's game, just tell them: "I learned it from watching you."
