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

As good as Griffith is he doesn't matter without an amazing performance by Patricia Neal. Likely her best.

"“Andy Griffith’s singing voice is raw, and it’s got a dangerous sexuality that works with his character…. There’s something about Lee Remick in this movie – kind of like a sexpot that shot out of the cannon. She’s very seductive, like Lolita, but knowing her power and using it to get out of her situation…. This film is just a sock to the gut.” - Rose McGowan “It’s so powerful, a great example of how deceiving television can be…. This is about a man who literally seduces"
