Onionhead

Onionhead (1958)

My Rating

Movie Info

In his third starring feature, Onionhead, Andy Griffith plays a character somewhere inbetween the bucolic ingenuousness of Will Stockdale in No Time for Sergeants and the hotheaded truculence of Lonesome Rhodes in A Face in the Crowd. Griffith is cast as Al Woods, a college student majoring in girls and parties. When his grades drop and his relationship with girlfriend Jo Hill (Erin O'Brien) sours, Al joins the Coast Guard as assistant cook on the SS Periwinkle, fully expecting to sit out WW2 in

Andy Griffith and the other actors are decent, but the film is verbose, overlong, and lacks sufficient humor to qualify as comedy.

Can only achieve sentimental drivel and very little comedy.

Audience Reviews for Onionhead

Without any doubt, Andy Griffith suffers the big TV hangover when it comes to his career beyond Mayberry. He's a much under-appreciated actor to be sure. He and Walter Matthau drinking together and "debating" the cinnamon roll problem makes seeing this one a must all by itself. Don't listen to the negative critics; see this one.
