Original Hal

Catalog > Collectibles > Original Hal "Otis" Smith TV & Movie Scripts

We have a selection of original scripts that were used by actor Hal Smith, Mayberry's Otis Campbell. Beyond Mayberry, Hal was one of the all-time busiest character actors and voice-over actors in movies, TV, and commercials. He was also one of the kindest and most generous people you could ever meet.

Note: All profits from the sale of these original scripts of Hal Smith go toward the financial support given by Weaver's Dept. Store and "The Andy Griffith Show" Rerun Watchers Club to the annual Mayberry Days festival in Mount Airy, N.C..

Each of these scripts is an original used by Hal. Special features of each are indicated. All of the scripts are priced individually. Our standard shipping charge of $5.00 per shipment (not per item) applies. If you have questions about any of the scripts, you can inquire by e-mail at weavershop@aol.com.

Here are descriptions of the scripts:
(NOTE: This page will be updated as quickly as possible when items are sold. There is only ONE of each of these scripts so when it sells....there are no more of that one.)

Hal Smith Original Script - "The Out-of-Towners"

Hal Smith Original Script - "The Out-of-Towners"

"The Out-of-Towners" (This is the Final Draft, dated August 6, 1963. Some additional loose pages with changes have also been inserted.)

Hal Smith has written his name and character name (Stubby) in blue ballpoint on the cover. The script is numbered "96."

We're not sure about the history of this script.  It is written by Tad Mosel and was to be produced by the famed Martin Manulis Productions  The only other production of this screenplay that we can find is a 1957 Studio One production.  This version of the script by Tad Mosel, who wrote the Studio One version, is six years later.  (And it shouldn't be confused with the movie written by Neil Simon and starring Jack Lemmon, which was released in 1970.)

So, we don't know when this version with Hal was produced and aired, or if it ever did. But Hal wrote his name on it, and we're guessing it's a pretty rare script these days...because there seems to be no record of its production.

Proceeds from the sale of this script are designated for the annual Mayberry Days festival in Mount Airy, N.C.

This script is from an episode of "Arnie" called "The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing, but the Truth."  This the Final Draft, dated Dec. 13, 1971.  The episode apparently was shot on Dec. 14.  It aired on CBS on Jan. 29, 1972.

The script has "Hal Smith" written in pencil in what looks like Hal's writing.  But it's not clear that Hal actually got a part in this episode. 

The script was co-written by Jack Elinson and stars Sue Ane Langdon, both of whom have Mayberry ties.

Hal Smith Original Script - Night Court - "Dan's Escort"

Night Court - "Dan's Escort" This script is a Table Draft dated Dec. 3, 1985, with a taping date of Dec. 6, shortly before he was to begin work on the "Return to Mayberry" movie.)

Hal wrote "Hal Smith" and the location of his scene in pencil on the cover.  He also made some other miscellaneous notations in black ink on the cover.

Hal had a recurring role as Derelict on Night Court.  It was usually for just a quick gag line, as it was in this case.  But there was no one better at stealing (and making!) a scene with one line than Hal, which we're sure delighted the Night Court cast and crew as much as it did audiences!

One of the classic comedies from NBC during 1980s, Night Court ran for nine seasons.  This script is from its second season.

Taxi - "Get Me Through the Holidays"  This is a revised draft, dated 11/10/82.)

The only marks in this script are some page number changes.  We're not sure what Hal's uncredited role is in this script, but we're betting he was Santa, a role he played almost as often as lovable imbibers.
