Biography
The son of actors Joel McCrea and Frances Dee, Jody McCrea didn't seem to have much direction in life until his father insisted that they be co-starred in the 1959 TV western Wichita Town. The younger McCrea attempted to follow in his father's rugged, "strong silent-type" footsteps in his subsequent film appearances. By the time he became a regular in the Beach Party flicks at American-International in the mid-1960s, however, McCrea had found his true cinematic niche as goofy, vacant-eyed comedy relief. Jody McCrea gave up show business in 1970 to become a rancher in New Mexico. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
