Description

ALL THE KING'S MEN stars Broderick Crawford, as Willie Stark, who won an Academy Award for his work. The character of Stark was most certainly inspired by Louisiana's Huey Pierce Long, the controversial "Kingfish" who ruled the state as governor (and later senator) with an iron hand, soaking the wealthy and enhancing his personal power unscrupulously.
