Definitely not a feel good movie, but the movie powerfully depicts the insidious lust of power. The need for more and more power leads to greater heights of sin to get it. Ultimately, the true nature and reality of this lust is depicted, death. To the very end, the "king" wants only his own glory.

All The King's Men is the story of the rise of politician Willie Stark from a rural county seat to the spotlight. Along the way, he loses his initial innocence, and becomes just as corrupt as those who he assaulted before for this characteristic. Also included is the romance between one of his "right hand women" and the up-and-coming journalist who brings Stark to prominence.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2017 (28 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 48min. First Viewing An expert tale of power and political corruption, All the King's Men is an intelligent look the the lengths some will go to keep their power. While its power has possibly diminished over the years due to various acolyte films, it has become even more prophetic in its allusions to the rise of cults of personality. The supporting cast is great, especially McCambridge, but this really is Crawford's show, selling his character's decent into corruption and his inherent"
