    "A Lion Is In The Streets" seems like a pale imitation of "All The King's Men". Both films are very similar - a Southern backwoods rube becomes a self-taught lawyer, enters politics, campaigns to become governor of his state, vows to help the oppressed and poor, fights against the corrupt power structure, is tranformed into the very thing he is opposed to, and is ultimately destroyed. Broderick Crawford does a way better job in his Oscar-winning turn as Willie Stark in "All The King's Men" than James Cagney as Hank Martin in "Lion". A little nepotism going on too - Cagney's sister Jeanne co-stars, and his brother William produced this "All The King's Men" wannabe. The difference between the two films is that Stark is elected governor, while Martin ends up tied with the incumbent and tries to become governor by armed force (lynching an entire state, as his wife puts it). I agree with the previous reviewer - not one of Cagney's best efforts.

    * I wondered since I'm a Cagney fan I never heard of this one. Now I know. Disappointing, alot of hot air.
