Season 7, Episode 16 (originally released on November 5th, 2023)

On today’s episode of the Shame List Picture Show Michael is joined by fellow podcaster and Cinepunx member Nick Spacek of the Carnage Report to discuss Elia Kazan’s masterpiece A FACE IN THE CROWD. Not only is A FACE IN THE CROWD a terrifying look at how a man can rise to power and influence by telling the general public what they want to hear, but it also features an electrifying early performance by the legendary Andy Griffith. Once you’ve seen Griffith in the role of Larry “Lonesome” Rhodes, you will never forget it. A FACE IN THE CROWD is as relevant today as it was back in 1957.
