Audience Reviews for The Ballad of Andy Crocker

Decent late 60's TV movie showing the problems faced by returning Vietnam vets and the callous treatment they were subjected to from the people back home. Majors is okay but Agnes Moorehead shows what a great actress can do with one scene. She tells you all you need to know about her character in less than 10 minutes through body language and minimal dialogue.

Super Reviewer

This television made movie is above average for that genre. It is most notable as for being one of the first films to tackle the issue of Vietnam veterans returning home and the problems they face. Good pacing and well acted, especially by Lee Majors. Good screenplay, perceptive direction.
