Louisianas Huey Long built his remarkable career as Governor and US Senator on a platform of social reform and justice, all the while employing graft and corruption to get what he wanted. Longs spellbinding personality and political machine might have taken him to the White House had he not been assassinated in 1935. This finely crafted film by Ken Burns reveals a complex and comprehensive portrait of the man and the era, his politics and the power he so obsessively sought. Extensive archival footage and recollections by Luoisianans who knew Long are juxtaposed with candid contemporary interviews with historian Arhthur M Schlesinger, Jr, journalist IF Stone and author Robert Penn Warren, whose magnificent novel œAll the Kings Men? was inspired by the rise and fall of Huey Long.
