In 1957, Andy Griffith made his film debut in the movie, A Face in the Crowd. From here he followed up his film acting work with appearances in movies such as No Time for SergeantsOnionhead, and The Second Time Around.

To begin with, his on-screen roles in movies were small parts, but soon his star status began to grow as audiences took the actor to their hearts. This (along with a very successful TV career) increased his presence on the big screen, and propelled his career toward the icon he would eventually become.

But how familiar are you with Andy Griffith’s back catalogue of movies? If you were asked to name them all what would you say?

Well, don’t worry, because I can help. In this post you will find a list of all Andy Griffith’s movies, presented in chronological order, starting with minor roles and bit parts in his early pictures, and running through to more substantial roles in later life.
