Book Thoughts | All the King's Men - Robert Penn Warren
 
03:41
"I was headed out down a long bone-white road, straight as a string and smooth as glass and glittering and wavering in the heat and humming under the tires like a plucked nerve. I was doing seventy-five but I never seemed to catch up with the pool that seemed to be over the road just this side of the horizon. Then, after a while, the sun was in my eyes, for I was driving west. So I pulled the sun screen down and squinted and put the throttle to the floor. And kept on moving west. For West is where we all plan to go someday. It is where you go when the land gives out and the old-field pines encroach. It is where you go when you get the letter saying: 'Flee, all is discovered.' It is where you go when you look down at the blade in your hand and see the blood on it. It is where you go when you are told that you are a bubble on the tide of empire. It is where you go to grow up with the country. It is where you go to spend your old age. Or it is just where you go."

Oscar®-winning actor Sean Penn (Best Actor, Mystic River, 2003), two-time Academy Award® nominee Jude Law (Best Supporting Actor, The Talented Mr. Ripley, 1999; Best Actor, Cold Mountain, 2003), four-time Academy Award® nominee Kate Winslet (Best Supporting Actress, Sense and Sensibility, 1995; Iris, 2001, Best Actress, Titanic, 1997; Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, 2004), and Oscar® winner Anthony Hopkins (Best Actor, The Silence of the Lambs, 1991) star in this riveting story of a humble man's rise to political power and the destructive force of corruption and betrayal that would ultimately unravel his soul, based on Robert Penn Warren's 1946 classic Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Willie Stark (Penn) is an ordinary man from a rural town, demanding that crooked politicians and shady businessmen in Louisiana be held accountable for the collapse of a poorly built school. Urged to run for Governor by a dubious political advisor, Tiny Duffy (three-time Emmy® Award winner James Gandolfini, Lead Actor in a Drama Series, "The Sopranos", 2000, 2001, 2003) Stark, finds his voice as a charismatic man of the people. He then befriends a young idealistic journalist, Jack Burden (Law), who eventually ends up working for him. But when Stark asks Burden to dig deep for damaging information on an old family friend, Judge Montague Irwin (Hopkins), Burden begins to question his own morality and Stark's surprising transformation into an inflexible leader that will stop at nothing to remain in power.

ALL THE KINGS MEN - Theatrical Trailer HD
 
02:38
Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Robert Penn Warren, All the King's Men is a "roman a clef" inspired by the career of Louisiana governor Huey Long. Broderick Crawford won an Academy Award for his portrayal of Willie Stark, a backwoods Southern lawyer who wins the hearts of his constituents by bucking the corrupt state government. Journalist John Ireland is impressed by Willie's seeming sincerity, and aids Stark on the road to political power. Once he's reached the governor's mansion, however, Willie proves himself to be as dishonest and despotic as the crooks whom he's replaced. He also cheats shamelessly on his wife with both campaign manager Mercedes McCambridge (another Oscar winner) and with Joanne Dru , the sister of idealistic doctor Sheppard Strudwick . Fiercely protective of his power, Willie organizes a fascistic police force and arranges for "accidents" to befall those who oppose him; even so, he retains the love of the voters by lowering the poverty level, improving the school system, and financing building projects. Even when Willie all but orchestrates the suicide of Dru 's uncle, a highly respected judge ( Raymond Greenleaf ), those closest to him are unable to escape his power and the charismatic hold he has over people. It looks as though the White House is the next step in Willie's career after he beats an attempt to impeach him—but he is done in by one of the people he's stepped on. As his life slowly ebbs away, Stark moans "It coulda been....whole world...Willie Stark." Stockton, California stands in for the unnamed state capitol where most of the film's action occurs. In addition to its Oscars for Crawford and McCambridge , All The King's Men won the "best picture" prize. Warren's novel would later be adapted into a stage play, a TV special, and even an opera

What is POLITICAL DRAMA? What does POLITICAL DRAMA mean? POLITICAL DRAMA meaning - POLITICAL DRAMA definition - POLITICAL DRAMA explanation. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A political drama can describe a play, film or TV program that has a political component, whether reflecting the author's political opinion, or describing a politician or series of political events. Dramatists who have written political dramas include Aaron Sorkin, Robert Penn Warren, Sergei Eisenstein, Bertolt Brecht, Jean-Paul Sartre, Caryl Churchill, and Federico García Lorca. Television series that have been classified as political dramas include The West Wing, Borgen, Boss, Jack and Bobby, The Bold Ones: The Senator, Commander in Chief, House of Cards (UK and US versions), Madam Secretary and Designated Survivor. The Good Wife can also be considered a political drama, especially in its critically acclaimed second season and fifth season. Races for political office, including state's attorney, governor, and even a Presidential run, move in and out of the show's narrative and the story of its main character, Alicia Florrick. However, Alicia's primary profession as a litigator for the most part takes precedence in the narrative, and so the show more often focuses on her cases and related office politics, making it primarily a legal drama. There have been notables films that have been labeled as political dramas such as Thirteen Days. A famous literary political drama which later made the transition to film was Robert Penn Warren's All the King's Men.

Character analysis on Willie Lyrics: Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall Humpty Dumpty had a great fall all the king's horse and all the king's men couldn't put humpty together again All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put humpty together again Willie, in this story, tried to live too close to God, I see. Not in the way that Christians know, he tried to take His competency Using Jack, he climbed high to the sky, Humpty-like on the wall he climbed high, sat in Shaing-hai like a swell guy but he couldn't deny that his well would run dry Oh! But that's not the way this political humpty dumpty mess started Willie Stark was a kind man, fine man, he cared for the people. He was very bighearted But you'd never know this as the story went on; soon Willie was as bad as could be While all the other feet were on the ground, Humpty's on the wall just trying to be the king Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall Humpty Dumpty had a great fall all the king's horse and all the king's men couldn't put humpty together again All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put humpty together again Now Willie Starks tried and tried; tried with his might to make it right He found his corrupted side and tried to go back to what he cast aside This is when he tried to gather all the peices that broke when he fell off the wall; Lying, cheating, adultery, blackmail; How to make it right he can't recall. He tried to hard to become the king that he wanted to be too late, evil has shattered him figuratively Humpty's broken Dumpty's gone away Robert Penn Warren told a nursery rhyme today Huey Long, who Willie's based on, once said something, He said it in his famous speech "Every Man's a King." This implies that we're all equal. We are all the same Willie misconstrued this: To become better was his aim And this insures that Humpty Dumpty broken beyond repair All the king's men looked up and Willie's tumbling from the air. Irwin, in the book, said "To make an omelette, break some eggs" And of course this foreshadows Willie's Humpty Dumpty death Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall Humpty Dumpty had a great fall all the king's horse and all the king's men couldn't put humpty together again All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put humpty together again

All The King's Men Q&A
 
00:33
Q&A: Writer/Director/Producer Steven Zaillian & James Carville Studio: Sony Based on Robert Penn Warren's 1946 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "All the King's Men" tells the story of an idealist's rise to power in the world of Louisiana politics, and the corruption that leads to his ultimate downfall. It is a complex saga of human nature, power, corruption, idealism, romance and betrayal. Using politics as a framework to delve into the more profound dilemmas of human existence — sin, guilt and redemption — it explores the nature of corruption in a way that is timely and relevant today. Warren's acclaimed exploration of morality was inspired by the career of Louisiana governor Huey P. Long and other political demagogues. Zaillian's stylized treatment captures the essence of Warren's novel, infusing it with classic noir elements. Dir: Steven Zaillian Writer: Steven Zaillian; Based on the novel by Robert Penn Warren Cast: Sean Penn, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Patricia Clarkson, James Gandolfini, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins

We had to do this film for AP English as part of our end-of-the year group project. This is a scene that has been adapted from Robert Penn Warren's novel All the King's Men. Tom Stark, Willie Stark's son, has been in a football accident and has broken his spinal chord. This scene should've been filmed in a hospital ward, but we're not that hard core. In order of appearance, the songs are "Odessa Medley" by Paul Cantelon, "On the Alamo" by Benny Goodman, "Walk Away" by Ben Harper, and "Start Wearing Purple" by Gogol Bordello.

What are your favorite books?
 
01:31
The Bible still hasn't gone out of fashion in the US, Mills says. Question: What are your favorite books? Charles Bock: Well. Number one on what influenced my work is The Ring of Brightest Angles Around Heaven; that's number one. Number two is a little novel called The Stepford Wives, by whoever wrote that. Dr. Seuss, The Cat in the Hat is a great seminal piece of thinking and writing. A lot of the books I named are really high on my list. I had a face with Truman Capote, where I just loved his very early in my writing life or I was just in love with some of the beautiful paragraphs and sentences he wrote and I still think In Cold Blood is a great, great book. Fitzgerald and I love Gatsby and the longer one, the one that took him 10 years. Tender Is the Night breaks my heart. One of those book that I almost can't pick up again, because I don't want to put myself through how hard, how touching and heart breaking the ending of that it is. Robert Penn Warren's, All the King's Men. I just love that book so much. In fact I ripped some of the lyrical nature of, some of those paragraphs I gave to Ponyboy and instead of driving through Weezyana heat, I have Ponyboy riding his bike through the Las Vegas streets. And there is a couple of paragraphs in there that are direct, okay writing God's Robert Penn Warren wherever you are, this is my salute to you. Those, I think are some of the real, real landmarks. And there is many, many more and I am sure for hours I will be replying this question in my head. That's a good one.

Robert Penn Warren: A Vision
 
01:05:53
Evening Hawk BY Robert Penn Warren From plane of light to plane, wings dipping through Geometries and orchids that the sunset builds, Out of the peak's black angularity of shadow, riding The last tumultuous avalanche of Light above pines and the guttural gorge, The hawk comes. His wing Scythes down another day, his motion Is that of the honed steel-edge, we hear The crashless fall of stalks of Time. The head of each stalk is heavy with the gold of our error. Look! Look! he is climbing the last light Who knows neither Time nor error, and under Whose eye, unforgiving, the world, unforgiven, swings Into shadow. Long now, The last thrush is still, the last bat Now cruises in his sharp hieroglyphics. His wisdom Is ancient, too, and immense. The star Is steady, like Plato, over the mountain. If there were no wind we might, we think, hear The earth grind on its axis, or history Drip in darkness like a leaking pipe in the cellar. Robert Penn Warren, (born April 24, 1905, Guthrie, Ky., U.S.—died Sept. 15, 1989, Stratton, Vt.), American novelist, poet, critic, and teacher, best-known for his treatment of moral dilemmas in a South beset by the erosion of its traditional, rural values. He became the first poet laureate of the United States in 1986. In 1921 Warren entered Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn., where he joined a group of poets who called themselves the Fugitives (q.v.). Warren was among several of the Fugitives who joined with other Southerners to publish the anthology of essays I’ll Take My Stand (1930), a plea for the agrarian way of life in the South. After graduation from Vanderbilt in 1925, he studied at the University of California, Berkeley (M.A., 1927), and at Yale. He then went to the University of Oxford as a Rhodes scholar. From 1930 to 1950 he served on the faculty of several colleges and universities—including Vanderbilt and the University of Minnesota. With Cleanth Brooks and Charles W. Pipkin, he founded and edited The Southern Review (1935–42), possibly the most influential American literary magazine of the time. He taught at Yale University from 1951 to 1973. His Understanding Poetry (1938) and Understanding Fiction (1943), both written with Cleanth Brooks, were enormously influential in spreading the doctrines of the New Criticism (q.v.). Warren’s first novel, Night Rider (1939), is based on the tobacco war (1905–08) between the independent growers in Kentucky and the large tobacco companies. It anticipates much of his later fiction in the way it treats a historical event with tragic irony, emphasizes violence, and portrays individuals caught in moral quandaries. His best-known novel, All the King’s Men (1946), is based on the career of the Louisiana demagogue Huey Long and tells the story of an idealistic politician whose lust for power corrupts him and those around him. This novel won the Pulitzer Prize in 1947 and, when made into a film, won the Academy Award for best motion picture of 1949. Warren’s other novels include At Heaven’s Gate (1943); World Enough and Time (1950), which centres on a controversial murder trial in Kentucky in the 19th century; Band of Angels (1956); and The Cave (1959). His long narrative poem, Brother to Dragons (1953), dealing with the brutal murder of a slave by two nephews of Thomas Jefferson, is essentially a versified novel, and his poetry generally exhibits many of the concerns of his fiction. His other volumes of poetry include Promises: Poems, 1954–1956; You, Emperors, and Others (1960); Audubon: A Vision (1969); Now and Then; Poems 1976–1978; Rumor Verified (1981); Chief Joseph (1983); and New and Selected Poems, 1923–1985 (1985). The Circus in the Attic (1948), which included “Blackberry Winter,” considered by some critics to be one of Warren’s supreme achievements, is a volume of short stories, and Selected Essays (1958) is a collection of some of his critical writings. Besides receiving the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, Warren twice won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry (1958, 1979) and, at the time of his selection as poet laureate in 1986, was the only person ever to win the prize in both categories. In his later years he tended to concentrate on his poetry. - Britannica.com This documentary was directed and produced by Tom Thurman for Kentucky Educational Television (KET)
