John Landis on

All The King’s Men

Released 1949
Distributor Columbia

Rumor has it there was a recent remake of this Best Picture Oscar-winner, but nobody seems to remember seeing it. Broderick Crawford and Mercedes McCambridge also won deserved Oscars, but John Ireland, in his best role ever, didn’t. Neville Brand played the lead in a two-part 1958 Kraft Theater TV version directed by Sidney Lumet.
