Andy Griffith: The Original Influencer

Sad news today about the death of actor Andy Griffith at the age of 86. He may be best known for his namesake television program, but he was also the star of one of our favorite movies of all time — A Face in the Crowd.

Griffith plays a small-town hobo who becomes a celebrity host, “Lonesome” Rhodes. As he grows in popularity and influence, he also grows in arrogance and disdain for his audience. You can see where this is going. It’s a four-star must-see.
