"A Face In The Crowd" is every bit as relevant today as trhe day it was shot. And Griffith's performance in this is utterly mesmerizing. TCM will be showing it later this week, set your DVR if you've only ever seen Matlock or Mayberry. The movie will blow. You. Away.

I have not, but thanks for the tip to DVR it this week. Saved me an Amazon marketplace purchase. I'll check it out, it looks pretty good!

Please do, and let's talk about it sometime after the TCM showing, or whenever you've played it back. His performance in the fil is extrordinary. Also, if you hate talk radio pundits, the denouement is quite entertaining. But watch it and see just how contemporary the work remains. This film would have been huge, if Kazan hadn't made so many emenies in Hollywood back then.

"No Time for Sergeants" is pretty good too, in a different way. Neither are much like the Andy you're used to.
