Ike Book Talk FILM: "All the King's Men"

Sunday, March 11, 2018

This 1949 film is based upon the Pulitzer Prize novel "All the King's Men" by Robert Penn Warren. Broderick Crawford won an Oscar for his portrayal of bull-headed, backwoods politician Willie Stark in this powerful drama about political and personal corruption and the corrosive effects of power on the human soul. The story was inspired by the rise and fall of Huey P. Long, Louisiana's governor and one-time senator.
