When I was a child, I heard a rumor that the cast from "In the Heat of the Night" was filming and staying in houses in my father's neighborhood. I and my buddy Steven knocked on the door belonging to who we thought was a celebrity. It turned out to be Carol O'Connor from All in the Family and In The Heat of the Night. It was really early in the morning, and it was evident we woke him up. He was very nice to us and gave us autographs in his pajamas. He told us also where we could find his co-star, Alan Autry, who was also very kind and gave me an autographed casting list. It was a wonderful experience!
