Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 09/01/2002

"Mr. Crawford remains a stunning thunderer in his speeches..."

Product Description:

Broderick Crawford stands out in this fine drama about the rise and fall of a corrupt southern governor who promises his way to power. Crawford portrays Willie Stark, who, once he is elected, finds that his vanity and power lust prove to be his downfall. The film is based on the 1946 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Robert Penn Warren, which in turn was based largely on the story of Louisiana legend Huey Long. Directed by Robert Rossen (THE HUSTLER), ALL THE KING'S MEN earned seven Academy Award nominations and three wins, for Best Picture, Best Actor--Broderick Crawford--and Best Supporting Actress--Mercedes McCambridge.

Plot Synopsis:

A Huey Long-type political figure creates a following for himself among the "common" voters after being rejected by the organized party system. The film takes the point of view of a journalist who helps the politician make it to the big time by winning the governorship. But the power of high office eventually corrupts him and turns him into a controversial figure in the eyes of his onetime supporters.
