SO VERY MUCH THIS.

I grew up watching "The Andy Griffith Show" in syndication, and I loved it - still do. But when I saw Andy in "A Face In The Crowd," I was amazed at how dark and manipulative his character was.

He was an incredibly talented actor.

This is a great bit. Back in the day, Mad Magazine printed a great illustrated version of it.

Yeah, caught this on Sirius the first time, and it was awesome. Thanks to my satellite radio, I've also figured out just how funny Bob Newhart is. Problem is, I try to explain to people that these bits are funny, and they look at me sideways. It's like if it isn't one of the current comedians, it probably sucks...

I don't know, I didn't really find it all that funny. Maybe because I knew too many Southerners who sound just like that and have about that much common sense. Now, Jerry Clower can make me chuckle. I did get into a Mayberry kick when I was about 12 or 14, along with Matlock and "In the Heat of the Night" with Carroll O'Connor.

It's hard to beat the classics. Give Jerry Clower a try sometime. Won't be disappointed.

I recently watched No Time for Sergeants again, and forgot how really funny it is.
RIP Mr. Griffith

Newhart was a genius. I liked Clower too.

Charlie Prose was a funny story teller. I started listening to him as well as Bob and Ray on XM about 7-8 years ago and since Sirius bought them out they dropped them though on rare occasions I hear Charlie Prose.

Sirius sucks.

Their Garish Summit series by Bob and Ray were funny as hell.

I owe Bob Newhart my college diploma. I only graduated because of an A i got in a public speaking/persuasion class by reciting his Sir Walter Raleigh/tobacco speech as the opener to my anti-smoking final.

Under the Influence was another good role. He played an alcoholic father.

It was surreal to see Dad again.

In football the object is for the quarterback, also known as the field general, to be on target with his aerial assault, riddling the defense by hitting his receivers with deadly accuracy in spite of the blitz, even if he has to use shotgun. With short bullet passes and long bombs, he marches his troops into enemy territory, balancing this aerial assault with a sustained ground attack that punches holes in the forward wall of the enemy's defensive line.

In baseball the object is to go home! And to be safe! - I hope I'll be safe at home!

a face in the crowd is awesome but no time for sergeants is my favorite. the andy griffith show pilot was recently on and it seems he realized showing compassion, loyalty and cleverness would last longer if he was a intelligent enough actor to show this instead of playing a local yokel in front of the camera as a one trick pony.

If you don't wish to wait, A Face In The Crowd is also scheduled for airing on TCM at around 1:00a.m. tonight/this late evening/early tomorrow morning (however you wish to describe it).

It truly does earn its reputation as a wonderfully tough, hard-nosed, smart, spectacularly prescient film. And Mr. Griffith is just awesome in it. I don't know from where he pulled that snarlingly hellsent performance but I'm glad he did and that it was captured for the ages.

R.I.P. Mr. Griffith. Thanks for what you left behind for the future to appreciate.

I've watched both, more than a few times, even though I have approximately zero interest in sports. I've heard many times that baseball is a 'slow' game. And for the most part, I have to agree with that. But at least it keeps moving, more or less. American football seems to stop ever few seconds, and stay stopped for long periods. If baseball is like driving at rush hour, American football is the breakdown lane.

A search for Andy Griffith returns just two results: The Andy Griffith Show and Play the Game.

A Face in the Crowd is nowhere to be found on Netflix streaming (I might also add that No Time for Sargeants is not there either). I am afraid I shall have to call you a smelly liar, sir or madam.

Dude, I was joking around with you. Lighten up.

I can tell you that A Face in the Crowd was not on Netflix streaming on the 3rd, the day Griffith died, because I looked it up after reading the MSN article about his death that mentioned the film. However, it IS available on DVD through Netflix (http://movies.netflix.com/movie/A_Face_in_the_Crowd/70027515). Perhaps you have the DVD service and that's why you found it? If you have just the streaming service, the search no longer returns movies that are only available on disk.

I swear I saw them when. I checked when I saw the titles here and thought "cool, il watch those later..."

It wasn't on Amazon because I don't buy movies. And I don't use any other streaming services.

Or it's early onset Alzheimer's.

THIS, however, and 'No Time For Sargents' is great.

I do have DirecTV and set my DVR to get the upcoming TMC showing.
