Description by OLDIES.com:
A somber but realistic chronicle of raw, brutal power in force, All The King's Men is based on Robert Penn Warren's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name. It was brought to the screen in 1949 by producer Robert Rossen, who also wrote the screenplay and directed the film. The story was inspired by the rise and fall of southern bigwig Huey Pierce Long - the infamous "Kingfish" who was Louisiana's governor and one-time senator.
All The King's Men remains a hallmark political film with superb performances throughout. John Ireland garnered a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his role as Stark's tortured right-hand man, while Mercedes McCambridge won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress as Sadie Burke, Stark's callous, conniving political aide. In addition, the film won an Academy Award for Best Picture, along with nominations for Directing, Writing and Film Editing.
