Arkansas Classics: A Face in the Crowd

Event Series Event Series (See All)

June 9 @ 2:30 pm 4:30 pm

Film still from the movie Face in the Crowd.

In this 1957 film, an ambitious young radio producer Marcia Jeffries (Patricia Neal) finds a charming rogue named Larry “Lonesome” Rhodes (Andy Griffith) in an Arkansas drunk tank and puts him on the air.

Soon, Rhodes’ local popularity gets him an appearance on television in Memphis, which he parlays into national network stardom he uses to endorse a presidential candidate for personal gain. But the increasingly petulant star’s ego, arrogance, and womanizing threaten his rise to the top.

Come watch this rarely-seen Arkansas film on the big screen at the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts! Presented in partnership with the Arkansas Cinema Society, the Arkansas Classics Film Series shines a spotlight on films shot in Arkansas over the last century.
