A Trump in the crowd

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Marc Raim, Bal­ti­more

In “A Face in the Crowd,” the 1957 film star­ring Andy Grif­fith, Pa­tri­cia Neal and Wal­ter Matthau, di­rected by Elia Kazan and writ­ten by Budd Schul­berg, the plot re­volves around how a mega­lo­ma­niac is brought down by his com­ments be­ing broad­cast on tele­vi­sion over an open mike of which he is un­aware.

The par­al­lel with Don­ald Trump’s “locker room” com­ments sit­u­a­tion is eerie (“Trump es­ca­lates fight with GOP lead­ers as party unity frays,” Oct. 11). Some­times, fic­tion does in­deed be­come fact.
