Not only is this film great but the performance that "our loveable ole boy Andy Griffith" gave was one to remember! His portrayal of "Lonesome Rhodes" was non-pareil in that he was the essence of evil. Griffith was even frightening in this role. Kazan did a superb job of directing. Casting real including Patricia Neal and Walter Matthau, et al. Just one dynamite film!
