A Face in the Crowd
DIRECTOR: ELIA KAZAN
CAST: ANDY GRIFFITH, PATRICIA NEAL, WALTER MATTHAU, LEE REMICK
SCREENPLAY - BUDD SCHULBERG
In this blistering American drama from Elia Kazan, a charismatic drifter (Andy Griffith) goes from unknown Arkansas folk singer to radio discovery to national political superstar. Ruthlessly dissecting how easily and frighteningly celebrity can segue into demagoguery, the film is proof that the most outlandish fiction will eventually become reality.
Screening with Spike Lee's We Wuz Robbed, documentary on the 2000 Gore v.s. Bush recount.
