In director/writer Robert Rossen's Best Picture-winning political drama:

  • Willie Stark's (Oscar-winning Broderick Crawford) no-notes rousing, half-drunken campaign speech for governor at the Upton Fairgrounds barbecue: ("Now, listen to me, you hicks...")
  • his assassination scene on the steps of the state capital building when shot twice by the embittered and vengeful young Dr. Stanton, the nephew of the judge whose career Willie had ruined
  • Willie's last words: ("Could have been whole world - Willie Stark. The whole world - Willie Stark. Why does he do it to me - Willie Stark? Why?")

"Now, listen to me, you hicks..."
