All The King's Men (1949) Review


Excellent
Broderick Crawford is no Orson Welles, but this meditation on the underbelly of American politics is at least in the same league as Citizen Kane. Also a Best Picture winner, the film traces the rise of populist local hero Willie Stark, as he moves through the American political machine like a juggernaut, chewing up anything in his way. His compatriots (a newsman turned publicist, various lovelies and heavies) stick by him as Stark becomes corrupted en route to the top. The direction by Robert Rossen (The Hustler) isn't inspired, but he does get the job done with reasonable aplomb.

Del Tenney produced only four movies over his career -- which span from 1964 to 1964 -- though he's still kicking today and restarted his career as an executive producer in 1999, 35 years after his last credit. And yet his name is synonmyous with raunchy schlock horror,

Tenney's Violent Midnight (though I greatly prefer the original title of Psychomania) is the only one of the four films that Tenney didn't also direct. The story is one of a painter (Lee Phillips) who is suspected of murdering his models and other lady friends. As the body count rises, so do the suspects and the signs pointing to Phillips as the killer. Before the 90 minutes are up, someone will hack their way through a sorority slumber party, a tryst in the woods, and a host of other pseudo-naughty scenarios.
