Appeal to the People and Win the Election

Post by Laan Yaa Mo » May 14, 2024, 12:05 pm

This is the kind of firebrand speech that gets people elected. The movie is based on the dynamic and controversial career of Huey Long, a Governor of Louisiana. He portrays himself as the spokesman for the little guy (uneducated country hicks) fighting the big city political machine and corruption. Of course, along the way Willie Stark uses corruption, lies and muscle to gain election and stay in power.

'All an individual's Men (1949)' is a brilliant movie and Broderick Crawford turns in an excellent performance. Some might say that parallels to this movie can be seen in recent U.S politics.



You only pass through this life once, you don't come back for an encore.

Vote RFK Jr. You know it makes (a wee bit more) sense (than Biden or Trump).
