    Hell or High Water...pretty good. It shows what lengths folks will go to for family, and the preservation/improvement of said family's future. It also touches on some of the rural community's angst against big government and big business (banks, well conniving bankers, in particular).

    Another Face (from Another Face In The Crowd) 1957

    An Arkansas drifter becomes an overnight media sensation. As he becomes drunk with fame and power.

    I saw this when I was very young and did not understand it until I saw it again in a political science graduate course!

    The star of the movie is Andy Griffin!

    Co-stars: Patricia Neal, Anthony Franciosa, Walter Matthau, Lee Remick.

    There were no laughs from this movie in class. It was a reality check. Andy Griffin afterwards; said he would never do a picture that was so "dark".


    Andy Griffin with his building of fame and power - talk session!

    I had never even heard of this movie (1963) until now. It tells the tale of a young Greek trying to escape Turk tyranny at the turn of the century (the previous century!) and make it to the land of opportunity. It's a slow moving B&W, but it has a certain aura that draws you in. There tragedy and comedy. It's got it all as we follow the naïve protagonist. It's still relevant today as the US closes its borders.
