A classic American film that definetly deserves to be better known than it is. Fortunetly TCM shows it several times a year. Andy Griffith is absolutely superb as Lonesome Rhodes. I highly reccomend this movie.

Citizen Kane-like in it's rise and fall archetypal plot line, this film succeeded far beyond Kane in the absolutely brilliant performance and humor of Andy Griffith. I mean damn, I'd seen the Andy Griffith show, but this is amazing.

Andy Griffith makes a spectacular film debut in this searing drama as Lonesome Rhodes, a philosophical country-western singer discovered in a tanktown jail by radio talent scout Patricia Neal and her assistant Walter Matthau. They decide that Rhodes is worthy of a radio spot, but the unforeseen result is that the gangly, aw-shucks entertainer becomes an overnight sensation not simply... read more

Andy Griffith makes a spectacular film debut in this searing drama as Lonesome Rhodes, a philosophical country-western singer discovered in a tanktown jail by radio talent scout Patricia Neal and her assistant Walter Matthau. They decide that Rhodes is worthy of a radio spot, but the unforeseen result is that the gangly, aw-shucks entertainer becomes an overnight sensation not simply on radio but, thereafter, on television. As he ascends to stardom, Rhodes attracts fans, sponsors and endorsements by the carload, and soon he is the most powerful and influential entertainer on the airwaves. Beloved by his audience, Rhodes reveals himself to his intimates as a scheming, power-hungry manipulator, with Machiavellian political aspirations. He uses everyone around him, coldly discardin” read more

"20.6. DVD/PC Hieno kuvaus Andy "Matlock" Griffithin näyttelemästä vaatimattoman sympaattisesta kitaransoittelijakulkurista, joka päätyy ensin pikkukaupungin radioon ja sitä kautta koko kansan medialemmikiksi. Sitten showbisneksen varjopuolet alkavat muovata miestä ja meno muuttuu aika raastavaksi katsella. "DVD/PC", koska jouduin katselemaan viimeiset puoli tuntia netistä ladattuna koneelta, koska Warnerin Controversial Classics -boksin devari lakkasi toimimasta."

"A testament to how a satire over 50 years old can still be terrifyingly relevant (even more so now really) as it was when it was originally released. One prophetic film featuring a career highlight performance from Andy Griffith. "
