All the King's Men Reviews
well deserved three oscars!
(1949) ALl The King's Men
Written, directed, and based from his own book of the same name by Robert Rossen centering on inspired politician Broderick Crawford as Willie Stark starting small and then rising to the top eventually forgetting his values. Has similar ring to the 1957 film "A Face In The Crowd"! I personally don't care about the film very much but do see it's relevence since it still goes on as of right now regarding American politics meaning that it's an important film to all politicians.
Winner of three Oscars out of 7 nominations including Best Picture and Best Actor for Crawford.
3 out of 4
A small town lawyer goes from shit-disturb or to US Govenor and along the way loses his morals and values.
Crawford's acting is powerful which is appropriate for the films message - never get bigger than what u believe in!
Only drawback - I found it long in delivering the downfall.
