Sealed in manufacturer's shrink wrap ~ fast shipping. As a powerful indictment of modern politics, All the King's Men represents a landmark in the maturation of United States ... cinema. It is dominated by the dynamic performance of Broderick Crawford as Willie Stark, a thinly disguised version of real-life populist demagogue Huey Long. In an era that was still churning out feel-good political dramas like Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, audiences were shocked by the confrontational realism of a film that said not only that the American political system was corrupt but also that, absent the intervention of violence, it would remain corrupt. It has many cinematic descendants, most notably the similarly named All the President's Men about a real-life corrupt politician, and the observable fact of history that at least in this case, that the checks and balances did work to remove the corrupt official in ways that they did not for Huey Long. Winner of 3 Academy Awards. Thank you for your consideration. Read more Show Less

Overview

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Robert Penn Warren, All the King's Men is a roman à clef inspired by the career of Louisiana governor Huey Long. Broderick Crawford won an Academy Award for his portrayal of Willie Stark, a backwoods Southern lawyer who wins the hearts of his constituents by bucking the corrupt state government. Journalist Jack Burden John Ireland is impressed by Willie's seeming sincerity, and aids Stark on the road to political power. Once he's reached the governor's mansion, however, Willie proves himself to be as dishonest and despotic as the crooks whom he's replaced. He also cheats shamelessly on his wife with both his campaign manager Mercedes McCambridge, another Oscar winner and with Anne Stanton Joanne Dru, the sister of idealistic doctor Adam Stanton Sheppard Strudwick. Fiercely protective of his power, Willie organizes a fascistic police force and arranges for "accidents" to befall those who oppose him; even so, he retains the love of the voters by lowering the poverty level, improving the school system, and financing building projects. Even when Willie all but orchestrates the suicide of Anne's uncle, a highly respected judge Raymond Greenleaf, those closest to him are unable to escape his power and the charismatic hold he has over people. Stockton, CA, stands in for the unnamed state capitol where most of the film's action occurs. In addition to its Oscars for Crawford and McCambridge, All the King's Men won the Best Picture prize. Warren's novel would later be adapted into a stage play, a TV special, and even an opera.

    Average Transfer - Thrilling Political Pot Boiler!

    'All The King's Men' is the political melodrama that made actor, Broderick Crawford a household name. A pity that in the intervening decades that spark of popularity did not last and has today all but been forgotten. Crawford is Willie Stark - an honest man butting heads in the political arena with corrupt politicians until he finally gets his chance to rule by sweeping the every man's election. Too bad for Willie that his power goes to his head. John Ireland costars as the reporter who wants so desperately to believe in Willie that he's willing to overlook the slow downward spiral out into corruption and deceit. Mercedes McCambridge plays a shifty publicist with greed in her heart and poison on her mind. John Derek is cast as Willie's son - the tragic victim of his father's driving ambition. The transfer is somewhat of a disappointment. Though the gray scale is reasonably well balanced, contrast levels seem to be a shade too low throughout. A lot of wear and tear has gone into this film's original camera negative. Scratches and age related blemishes are glaringly obvious. Some sections of the print appear to have been lifted from third generation masters instead of the film's original camera negative. There are moments when aliasing and pixelization crop up but these don't terribly distract. The audio is MONO but nicely balanced. There are no extras on this disc.
