From 1957: A Trailer From My Favorite Movie

Have a good weekend, everybody. And if you haven't seen A Face In The Crowd, do so as soon as you can (you can watch the whole movie, in segments, if you follow the link!). It's so good, I won't even try to describe it to you, because I lack the words to do so. Yes, it's that good.

The Oscars are this weekend. They're so irrelevant; Andy Griffith, Patricia Neal, Walter Matthau, and Anthony Franciosa (who gives, in my opinion, the most devastating portrayal in the film) were all snubbed by the so-called Academy for this movie.

A very young and adorable Lee Remick made her big-screen debut in this film.

Oddly prescient for today. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

And I guarantee that you will never look at The Andy Griffith Show the same way ever again.


  1. EVERYONE should be forced to watch this film, especially during an election season, especially if they are fans of Faux New, especially if they listen to a certain blow hard on the radio.

  2. Love, love, love this movie!

  3. I'm not surprised you guys love this movie, too. Great minds often think alike :)
