A Face in the Crowd

Andy Griffith made his stunning movie debut as Lonesome, a big ol' teddy bear whose meteoric rise to TV fame is paralleled by his plunge into booze, sex and political corruption in this early look at 'television celebrity' from director Elia Kazan and screenwriter Budd Schulberg. Carries the white-hot edge of filmmakers who know the media world from the inside out. Based loosely on the experiences of Arthur Godfrey.
