Book Thoughts | All the King's Men - Robert Penn Warren
"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."
The Finest Novel Ever Written on American Politics: A Lawyer, Idealism, and Power (2006)
All the King's Men is a novel by Robert Penn Warren first published in 1946. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0156012952/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0156012952&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=5c47e07b192cc8c89f3c05303b6a680a Its title is drawn from the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty. In 1947 Warren won the Pulitzer Prize for All the King's Men. It was adapted for film in 1949 and 2006; the 1949 version won the Academy Award for Best Picture. It is rated the 36th greatest novel of the 20th century by Modern Library, and it was chosen as one of Time magazine's 100 best novels since 1923. Besides the early verse play version Proud Flesh, Robert Penn Warren has written several stage adaptations of All the King's Men,[13] one of them in close collaboration with famous German theatre director Erwin Piscator in 1947. The story was adapted for radio by NBC University Theatre and broadcast in January 1949. Wayne Morris played Jack Burden, with Paul Frees as Willie Stark.[14] All the King's Men, a movie made based on Warren's novel, was released several months later in 1949. The film won three Oscars that year: Best Picture, Best Actor (Broderick Crawford), and Best Supporting Actress (Mercedes McCambridge). The movie was also nominated for four more categories. In 2001 the United States Library of Congress deemed the film "culturally significant", and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry. It is noted, however, for deviating significantly from the novel's storyline. NBC network's The Kraft Theatre broadcast a television version of the story in May 1958. This adaptation was directed by Sidney Lumet and starred Neville Brand as Willie Stark. A Soviet TV adaptation named Vsya Korolevskaya Rat' (All the King's Men) was produced in 1971 by Byelorussian TV. It starred Georgiy Zhzhonov (Willie Stark), Mikhail Kozakov (Jack Burden), Alla Demidova (Anne), Oleg Yefremov (Adam), Rostislav Platt (Irwin), Lev Durov (Sugar Boy). Another film version was produced in 2006. Writer/director Steven Zaillian has said it was his goal to more faithfully follow Warren's version of the story than the original film did. American composer Carlisle Floyd adapted the novel as a full-length grand opera entitled Willie Stark, commissioned and premiered by the Houston Grand Opera in 1981. Adrian Hall adapted and directed a stage version of the novel at Trinity Repertory Company in Providence, Rhode Island in April 1987.[15] This adaptation has been staged at Trinity and other theater companies in the years since. All the King's Men portrays the dramatic political rise and governorship of Willie Stark, a cynical populist in the American South during the 1930s. The novel is narrated by Jack Burden, a political reporter who comes to work as Governor Stark's right-hand man. The trajectory of Stark's career is interwoven with Jack Burden's life story and philosophical reflections: "the story of Willie Stark and the story of Jack Burden are, in one sense, one story."[3] The novel evolved from a verse play that Warren began writing in 1936 entitled Proud Flesh. One of the characters in Proud Flesh was named Willie Talos, in reference to the brutal character Talus in Edmund Spenser's late 16th century work The Faerie Queene.[4] A 2002 version of All the King's Men, re-edited by Noel Polk (ISBN 0-15-100610-5), keeps the name "Willie Talos" for the Boss as originally written in Warren's manuscript, and is known as the "restored edition" for using this name as well as printing several passages removed from the original edit.[5] Warren claimed that All the King's Men was "never intended to be a book about politics." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_the_King%27s_Men

Literature Help 10: "All the King's Men" Plot Summary
The story of "All the King's Men" revolves around Willie Stark and Jack Burden. Willie Start is a farm boy who enables himself through sheer force to rise to become the Governor of an unnamed Southern State in the 1930s. Jack Burden is the narrator of the story. He is the head of the state government and the political aristocracy. He helps Willie in blackmailing and controlling his enemies. The novel questions the responsibility of the individuals and how they should act during the turmoil of history. The story gets its impetus from real historical events. Jack Burden is a fictional character, the creation of Robert Penn Warren. However, one can find many parallels between the character of Jack Burden and Huey Long who was the Governor and Senator of Louisiana from the year 1928 up to 1935, the year of his death.

ALL THE KINGS MEN - Theatrical Trailer HD
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

All the King's Men (Humpty Dumpty) RAP
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 (1949) - Trailer
In a bravura performance, Broderick Crawford won the 1949 Academy Award(r) for Best Actor with his stunning portrayal of bull-headed, backwoods lawyer Willie Stark, in this powerful drama about political and personal corruption. A somber but realistic chronicle of raw, brutal power in force, ALL THE KING'S MEN is based on Robert Penn Warren's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name. It was brought to the screen in 1949 by producer Robert Rossen who also wrote the screenplay and directed thefilm. The story was inspired by the rise and fall of southern bigwig Huey Pierce Long, the infamous"Kingfish" who was Louisiana's governor and one-time senator. Long's cunning tactics of building public works during the depression to serve his own needs more than those of his constituents eventually brought about his own assassination in 1935. A compelling story of a self-made, self-styled politician, it was politics that almost prevented Rossen from making ALL THE KING'S MEN in the first place when he was named by the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities in 1947 for having Communist sympathies. Rossen's denial of this to Columbia chief Harry Cohn enables him to continue work on the film; but his earlier radicalism eventually surfaced and Rossen made only one film (The Brave Bulls) in the next five years. Nonetheless, ALL THE KING'S MEN remains a hallmark political film with superbperformances throughout. John Ireland garnered an Academy Award(r) nomination for his role as Stark'stortured right-hand man, while Mercedes McCambridge won an Academy Award(r) for Best Supporting Actress as Sadie Burke, Stark's callous, conniving political aide. In addition, the film won an Academy Award(r) for Best Picture along with nominations for Directing, Writing and Film Editing.

All The King's Men Q&A
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

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.
