    The Skirball’s We the People series wraps with the American classic A Face in the Crowd. Part of the National Film Registry, this satirical drama stars Andy Griffith in his film debut as Larry "Lonesome" Rhodes—a charming drifter who is transformed into a radio personality, and ultimately, a freewheeling political influencer. Directed by Elia Kazan. (1957, 126 min. No MPAA rating.)
