Robert Rossen based the screenplay for his own film, All the King's Men (Robert Rossen, USA, 1949), on the 1949 Pulitzer prize-winning novel by Robert Penn Warren. It tells the story of the rise of the politician, Willie Stark (Broderick Crawford), a thinly disguised version of the 1930s Louisiana governor, Huey Long.
