Summary
"This ... production by the Cagney family is based on the career of Louisiana's populist demagogue in the 1930s, Governor Huey Long, also the inspiration for Robert Rossen's 1949 film All the King's Men. While constrained by the Long family's threat of legal action, Cagney's typically energetic performance manages to suggest something of [character] Hank Martin/Long's populist appeal. The title is an allusion to Julius Caesar, another assassinated demagogue."
