After ringing in this new podcast by reviewing Olympus Has Fallen, this week we’re talking about a movie that’s a little less, well, dumb. A Face In The Crowd saw legendary director Elia Kazan and writer Budd Schulberg teaming up once again after the success of On The Waterfront. As we discuss, A Face In The Crowd didn’t make quite the same splash as that classic, but now feels more and more ahead of its time with each passing year. We’ll also discuss the merits of Andy Griffith’s larger than life performance, the early rise of television, and try to get to the bottom of what exactly Vitajex is.
