[VIDEO] ‘A Face in the Crowd’: Marcia Destroys ‘Lonesome’ Rhodes

This scene from Elia Kazan‘s “A Face in the Crowd” shows “Lonesome” Rhodes (Andy Griffith) working on his nightly show, screaming at the technicians on breaks. Marcia (Patricia Neal) comes to the station, watching Rhodes speaking insultingly when off the air.


As the show ends, Marcia opens the microphones, so that Rhodes can be heard by the audience as he speaks vile insults at his fans, thus unmasking his nasty side to everyone.
