      A superb one man show!

      A Face in the Crowd is a rather epic film, essentially a drama - it has great moments of comedy as well as a musical element and is surprisingly similar to the more recent Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story starring John C. Reilly which is essentially a very very similar idea, ironically the actors look quite alike as well.

      The film details the ups and downs of fictional Arkansas born Larry Rhodes, a drunken waster and guitarist that makes it on to local radio after being discovered in a jail, his career is propelled into all manner of things and his personality swings full circle.

      Larry Rhodes is wonderfully played by Andy Griffith, so much so that it doesn't give the rest of the cast much of a look in. Although when they do get the chance their characters are well played as well. Larry is a big character and as a viewer you adore him at the beginning, feel for him in the middle and start dislike him by the end and wonder just why he's throwing away everything he's achieved.

      Obviously no star is complete without love interest, so this plays a crucial part in the film as well but is an important part of the story and not just there for the sake of it as in so many other films.

      This is a great film with some awesome bluesy country numbers, it's very entertaining and as a viewer you really feel like you know the character, this classic 1957 film is definitely worth a watch.
