Huey Long, the canebrake Führer

Earlier this week I had my say (here and here) about All the King's Men.

And in the early days of the blog I made the case for why Robert Penn Warren's novel was The Great Louisiana Novel (even if it was not the best Louisiana novel).

Now the New Yorker has had the good grace to make available, free online, its 1949 review by John McCarten of Robert Rossen’s Oscar-winning adaptation of the story.
