All the King's Men (1949)
All the King's Men is the 1949 feature film adaptation of the 1946 Robert Penn Warren-written novel. Loosely based on the life of Louisiana governor Huey Long, the film follows the career of Willie Stark (Broderick Crawford) and his rise from small town lawyer to governor using whatever means necessary to gain political power. The film was directed by Robert Rossen and would later receive three Academy Awards, including ones for Best Supporting Actress (for Mercedes McCambridge), Best Actor (for Crawford), and for Best Picture. All the King's Men would later be remade as a 2006 feature film that starred Sean Penn as Willie Stark.
