Huey Long

1985, Other
Part of the series "Ken Burns' America," this documentary covers the life of Huey Long, the infamous Louisiana senator who was assassinated in 1935. Viewed as a savior by the poor and a power-hungry Caesar by the rich, Long was an undeniably magnetic figure, running for office under the slogan "Every Man a King." Interviewing everyone from farmers to writer Robert Penn Warren, whose novel "All the King's Men" was inspired by Long, Burns shows the man's many sides, from genius to drunk.
