AP: Film fest for Goober of 'Griffith' fame

Robert Redford has a film festival, and so does cousin Goober. Named for the actor who portrayed the goofy grease monkey in Andy Griffith's old television show, the 10th annual George Lindsey UNA Film Festival opened Thursday at the University of North Alabama, Lindsey's alma mater. The Lindsey festival doesn't have the reputation of Redford's Sundance Film Festival, and northwest Alabama isn't a resort spot like Park City, Utah. Paparazzi? Doubtful. Jay Reeves reports.
