Aro Recommended Face in the Crowd, A

 

USA 1957, 120 minutes, B/W
Dir. Elia Kazan
Rating: [M]
Genres: Classics, Drama

Topics: Showbiz, Politics.

 

Aroview: Pungent social commentary on American mass culture outlays the rags-to-riches trajectory of a hick nobody (Griffith) whose rapid rise to fame as first a radio and TV star, then political icon, turns him into a celebrity monster. Kazan's direction is feverish and ahead of its time, while Andy Griffith's performance – his first in a motion picture – is nothing short of incendiary.
