Our Score
When talented, underrated director Robert Parrish worked as an editor, he managed to help pull together the shambles that was All the King's Men, not only winning himself an Oscar nomination (with Al Clark), but securing the best picture award and the best actor statuette for star Broderick Crawford. Crawford paid back the debt by lending his considerable (and bulky) presence to this, Parrish's second film as a director. Crawford brings great credibility to the role of a cop passing for a thug, and is especially good at the sexy repartee with forgotten actress Lynne Baggett. Other Mob faces include a veritable villains' gallery: Ernest Borgnine, Neville Brand and Charles Bronson. What more could you want?
