Summer Film Series » Hollywood in Arkansas: A Face in the Crowd
Join an opening conversation on the book Lights! Camera! Arkansas! with co-authors Robert Cochran and Suzanne McCray. The discussion begins with Arkansas’ connections to early Hollywood from the silent era to the 1950s, followed by a screening of A Face in the Crowd, a 1957 film directed by Elia Kazan and starring up-and-comer Andy Griffith as a country musician who made it big. A Face in the Crowd stands the test of time as one of the most significant films shot in Arkansas.
Lights! Camera! Arkansas! will be available for purchase, and the event will include an opportunity for a book signing with the authors.
