Political movies everyone should see — in glorious black and white
All the King's Men »1 of 10 «
Reportedly based on the life of Louisiana governor Huey Long, who also served as the state's senator until his assassination in 1935, "All the King's Men" is a dark examination of political power and corruption."
The New York Times' Bosley Crowther, who reviewed the film at the time of its release, lauded the film for gathering "a frightening comprehension of the potential of demagoguery in this land.
"It catches the dim but dreadful aspect of ignorance and greed," Crowther continued, "when played upon by theatrics, eloquence and bluff."
