Idealist Willie Stark is elected Governor of a mid-Western state, but the corruption he campaigned against soon threatens his own administration. Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Robert Penn Warren , it is reputedly based on the career of Huey Long , the Governor of Louisiana, assassinated in 1935. All The King's Men received an Academy Award in 1949 for the best film of the year, and Oscars went to Broderick Crawford (as best actor) and Mercedes McCam bridge (as best supporting actress).
