Louisiana Boys: Raised on Politics

PBS Premiere: August 31, 1992


In Louisiana, Mardi gras and elections run neck and neck as the number one pastime. Here is a cast of characters only Louisiana could produce: Huey P. Long, his excellency, the dictator of Louisiana; Uncle Earl K. Long, committed to an asylum while he was still governor; and Jimmie Davis singing his farewell speech to the state legislature. A romp through the high jinx and low morals of Bayou State politics.
