Reviews
Mine: Very interesting. Fine perfromances from the leads. A story that grips you from the start. Sweet and sad. I cried at least 3 or 4 times.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Newman gives a flashy, uninhibited performance as Earl Long, the flamboyant governor of Louisiana in the 1950s who fell headlong in love with stripper Blaze Starr (Davidovich, in her first lead role). Seemingly surefire story, peppered with colorful characters and incidents, falls alarmingly flat after a while and never recovers. Real-life Blaze Starr appears fleetingly as Lily, the stripper whose shoulder Newman kisses backstage.
