This was the first film of a multli-picture deal between Andy Griffith and Universal. Griffith was so disappointed with this film that he declined to make the other pictures that were part of the deal. See more »

She was not naked. And how do you know she was a harlot? You are bearing false witness!

Angel in My Pocket is a delightful family friendly comedy about a newly ordained minister who is sent to a small-town Kansas church dominated by two feuding families. Most of the comedy results from Andy Griffith's interactions as the minister with these two groups. Griffith is ably backed up by a cast that includes Lee Merriweather, Jerry Van Dyke, and a cast of character actors very familiar to anyone who watched TV in the 1960;s. Lee Merriweather is excellent as Griffith's very pregnant wife. Jerry Van Dyke and Kay Medford are very good as Griffith's neer do well brother in law and meddlesome mother in law, both of whom are supported by Griffith.
All in all, its a very uplifting comedy that can be enjoyed over and over by young and old.
