Audience Reviews for Angel in My Pocket


A real film about real things in a comedic way. Not hillarious, not slapstic, NO profanity....just amusing humor presented in the same way as The Andy Griffith Show television series in the sixties. This time Andy is not a policeman. The late (as of last year) Andy Griffith is a minister with an unruly family at his side. It's full of little humorous bits. It will relax you as you forget yourself and get absorbed into this family film. [img][/img] Griffith was not happy with the film and avoided making 2 more NOTEs: 1 This film was one of three originally planned by Universal Pictures to feature Andy Griffith in the wake of his television series' success. 2 Griffith's disappointment in this film led to a cancellation of the project. Hence, the other two films were never made. [img][/img] A young Jerry Van Dyke (left) ha ha See the entire film here: Angel in my Pocket is a 1969 film starring Andy Griffith and directed by Alan Rafkin. The movie was one of three originally planned by Universal Pictures to star Griffith, and also featured Lee Meriwether, Jerry Van Dyke, Kay Medford, Henry Jones, Edgar Buchanan, and Gary Collins. This film has never been released to home video in any format.

Reading others' Christmas reviews, I decided to review this wonderful homespun film co-starring former Miss America Lee Meriwether (Catwoman) as the Preacher's (Andy Griffith) wife and Jerry Van Dyke as her brother Bubba....definitely a "G" rated family classic.
