At the tender age of four, a freckle-faced boy with a toothy grin began a film career that would last several decades. America would soon come to recognize Ron Howard as a lovable little kid on The Andy Griffith Show and later as a lovable teen on Happy Days, two of the most popular shows in the history of television. But Howard wasn't content to be an actor; he had dreams of directing. With a penchant for telling a good story, Ron Howard has been criticized for sometimes being too sentimental, but you can't fault him for having a heart -- and legions of movie fans prove that, sappy or not, Howard's heart is in the right place.
