Elia Kazan's "A Face in the Crowd" charts the rise of a raucous hayseed named Lonesome Rhodes (Andy Griffith) from itinerant Ozark guitar picker to local media rabble-rouser to TV superstar and political king-maker. Patricia Neal plays Marcia Jeffries, the innocent Sarah Lawrence girl who discovers the great man in a back-country jail and is the first to fall under his spell.

My belief is that Andy Griffith in A Face in the Crowd and Anton Walbrook in The Red Shoes were the two best Male Actor performances of all time, and so how was it that for A Face in the Crowd, no Oscar nominations?

A fantastic movie about the rise and fall of an icon. Andy Griffith gives a superb performance. He will be missed.

A vicious, criminal southern drifter with a warm, friendly singing style becomes a TV and radio star with disturbing political ambitions in this overblown and melodramatic fifties satire.
