The wonderful Lee Remick made her film debut in the 1957 film A Face in the Crowd. She was just 21 when the movie premiered. To prepare for the role as a baton twirler, Remick spent two weeks on location, living with a teen twirler and her family. She used the time to work on her baton twirling and on perfecting the local accent.
This movie also marked Andy Griffith’s film debut.
