Andy Griffith’s Powerful Film Debut

3 Nov

I watched Elia Kazan’s “A Face in the Crowd” on TCM Saturday night.

If you have only thought of Griffith as a loveable sheriff, check this film out.

Griffith’s performance is powerful and gut-wrenching.

Watch it and you’ll never look at good old Andy the same way again.

TCM’s Rose McGowan described the film as “A kick in the gut.”

I am really surprised that this role didn’t catapult Andy to film stardom.

His tour-de-force performance is nothing short of remarkable.


This is me and Andy in his hometown of Mount Airy, North Carolina
