Starring Andy Griffith, Patricia Neal, Walter Matthau, Lee Remick,  Rip Torn (brief appearance)

Andy Griffith is a force of nature as Lonesome Rhodes, a nobody discovered in a jail cell by a local radio producer, Marcia Jeffries. Jeffries finds the drunk drifter charismatic, featuring him on her show, and from that point on the film becomes a searing character portrait, tracing the meteoric rise and the inevitable fall of its protagonist.
