This week, Devin and Amy discuss the Elia Kazan-directed 1957 film "A Face in the Crowd." They discuss why the film counts as a real "American" picture and what it has to say about the new mass media. Then they cover the similarities between Lonesome Roads and presidential candidate Donald Trump before praising Patricia Neal's pure charm. Finally, they talk Elia Kazan's skills as an actors' director and why you must think you are the center of the universe to run for president. Does "A Face in the Crowd" deserve a place in the Canon?
