Summary
A chronicle of the rise and fall of Larry Lonesome Rhodes, a boisterous entertainer discovered in an Arkansas drunk tank by Marcia Jeffries, a local radio producer with ambitions of her own. His charisma and cunning soon shoot him to the heights of television stardom and political demagoguery, forcing Marcia to grapple with the manipulative, reactionary monster she has created. Directed by Elia Kazan, this incisive satire features an extraordinary debut screen performance by Andy Griffith
