Staring Andy Griffith in his movie debut!

A Face in the Crowd (film)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Face_in_the_Crowd_(film)

A Face in the Crowd is a 1957 film starring Andy Griffith, Patricia Neal and Walter Matthau, directed by Elia Kazan.[1][2] The screenplay was written by Budd Schulberg, based on his short story "Your Arkansas Traveler".

The story centers on a drifter named Larry "Lonesome" Rhodes (Griffith, in a role starkly different from the amiable "Sheriff Andy Taylor" persona), who is discovered by the producer (Neal) of a small-market radio program in rural northeast Arkansas. Rhodes ultimately rises to great fame and influence on national television.

The film launched Griffith into stardom, but earned mixed reviews upon its original release. Later decades have seen reappraisals of the movie, and in 2008 A Face in the Crowd was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".



[NOTE: On today's show Alex proved that Perry is just a carbon copy of Clinton. This thread is a spin off of this one: http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=212128.0 . It absolutely fits for Rick Perry, probably even more so than for Clinton. Watch the movie and see if it is true.]

Told to the main character by his handler, a retired influential general...

[M]y study of history has convinced me that in every strong society from the Egyptians on the mass had to be guided with a strong hand by a responsible elite. Let us not forget that in TV we have the greatest instrument for mass persuasion in the history of the world.

That was an incredible movie. I watched it with my father quite a few years ago on TCM and was blown away. This really should be required viewing by everyone, especially those who watch a little too much cable news shows.
