Un rostro en la multitud – A Face in the Crowd (1957), de Elia Kazan

Acabo de visionar el dvd de esta gran (no llega a obra maestra) película dirigida por Elia Kazan, que anticipó con muchas décadas de antelación la degradación actual de los medios. IMPRESCINDIBLE, sobre todo por el excelente guión escrito por Budd Schulberg.

Wikipedia EN 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.

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”.
