RIP, Andy Griffith

Posted By on Tue, Jul 3, 2012 at 10:05 AM

Of course Andy Griffith, who died today at the age of 86, will be best known for the Andy Griffith Show which ran for eight years, but which might live on via reruns forever, or possibly for the nine years of the folksy legal drama Matlock. However, if you have the opportunity, check out A Face in the Crowd, the 1957 film by Elia Kazan that made Griffith a star playing a character wildly unlike the kind, thoughtful men he would later be known for portraying. Someone is going get wise and remake this look at the nature of celebrity someday and probably do a terrible job, but Griffith is great in the role.
