At Christmas time, I posted Don Harron as Charlie Farquharson reciting his version of "The Night Before Christmas." I found an educational film about the Canadian forest service featuring Harron as Charlie. This contains the kind of humor that made this character popular in Canada.

This is the trailer for a Man from UNCLE movie called The Spy With My Face, in which Don Harron play Agent Kitridge. A Thrush agent disguised as Napolean Solo kills Kitridge with a cyanide cigarette when he realizes that he is not the real Solo. That scene is in this trailer.

Also on YouTube is a eight part interview with Don Harron about his long career in Canada and even his rather candid remarks about his work on the TV show Hee Haw. He also tells how he borrowed Charlie's famous wool sweater from future famous movie director Norman Jewison and never returned it. Harron was very interesting guy.
