Murder is born in many places, but most of them, quite ordinary. Sometimes it is born in a smoke filled hotel room, sometimes around a nightclub table, but most often it begins in a small secret place because murder is a secret thing at first. Take, for example, a small, unobserved telephone booth in the back of a chain drugstore. The one in which a small time racketeer Peanut Morolla is talking.

All The Kings Men is a dramatic story of political intrigue set in a southern state with a central character, Willie Stark, who is suggested by the late Governor Huey Long. The style is racy, colloquial and very skilful. In the novel and this dramatization Jack Burden tells the story and it is his story as much as it is Willie Starks and perhaps it is more. Willie Stark acts and his actions are both good and bad though he acts and does not reflect. Jack Burden reflects trying to understand the significance of Willies life and his own. Writien by Robert Penn Warren.
