  • Forrest Compton played Colonel Gray on Gomer Pyle.

    Forrest Compton was flawless in portraying Colonel Gray on Gomer Pyle. No matter what emotion his character was called to do, Mr. Compton was always able to deliver. If it was surprise related to the character of Gomer, he was very belivable. If he had to sternly lecture Seargant Carter, it was authenic. One of his great attriutes as an actor was he never tried to "steal" a scene by overacting. Even with other actors other than Jim Nabors and Frank Sutton, his performances were steady and realiable, a steady foundation for the show. I rate Forrest Compton a terriffic actor, and perfect for the role of Colonel Gray.
