A FACE IN THE CROWD ( 1957 )

CineMaven's Essays from the Couch Posted by Theresa Brown on Nov 6, 2016

One of my favorite films is “A FACE IN THE CROWD.” Andy Griffith, Patricia Neal and Walter Matthau were wonderful. In fact, I enjoyed every one’s characterizations and Elia Kazan’s message of cynicism was spot on. Power brokers…false prophets… charlatans…snake oil salesmen read more

The Crowd (1928)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on May 17, 2016

The Crowd is a true piece of urban Americana, setting the standard when it comes to your average everyday American. King Vidor’s film lacks big-name star power and plays on a universal story similar to Murnau’s Sunrise. Our protagonist is Johnny Sims, who was fittingly born on the 4th of read more

I was stunned and amazed by the simple, straightforwardness of this tale. But not simple for simple’s sake. It’s read more

Pre-Code vs Post-Code: "The Crowd Roars" and "Indianapolis Speedway"

The Man on the Flying Trapeze Posted by David on Aug 3, 2014

Pre-code versus post-code is the difference between a Duesenberg and a Hummer, between cafe au lait and chocolate milk, between a camisole and a union suit. Take the differences, for instance, between the 1932 film "The Crowd Roars" and the 1939 film "Indianapolis Speedway." Same story (by Howard H read more

A Face in the Crowd

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jun 20, 2013

Most know Andy Griffith best from his popular show, The Andy Griffith Show, and his later years on Matlock.  However, few realize that his screen debut came in 1957 in the film by Elia Kazan, A Face in the Crowd.  Here, Griffith is a downtrodden young man found in jail with enormous talent for winni read more

The Crowd Roars (1932)

Movie Classics Posted by Judy on Sep 16, 2008

I found it a powerful film, with wonderful acting from Cagney and Ann Dvorak in particular, and am puzzled as to why it isn’t better-known – especially as a top director like Howard Hawks was at the helm. You’d think there would be a demand for it just because of the racing footage read more
