Mainly set from 1955 to 1972 with flashbacks, it tells the story of this governor, said to be in the USA, 'the greatest political loser of all time', having stood for the US presidency four times and losing each time. And how loss, pain and suffering would eventually lead him to renounce what he once stood for. Written by

Corrupted by Power Wallace Finally "Saw the Light" Seeks Redemption
A Fine Emmy Winning Portrayal by Gary Sinise as Gov. George Wallace the Opportunist Southern Politician that let His Ambitions Corrupt His Principles and later "Saw the Light".
A Good Supporting Cast helps the proceedings and Solid Directing from Frankenheimer, who doesn't let Style intrude on the Story and tells it Matter of "Fact". Relying on Stock Footage to set the Mood and Tone, the Story of Wallace and His Influence on Politics and Society is Interesting.
It might Lack the Impact that His Racists Proclamations had on Blacks and Hateful Whites, He never did get the Implications of His Influence until it was Too Late and much Damage had been done.
Wallace is shown On Screen Contemplating these things now and then. But He never seems to realize what He had Wrought and only in the End does He come to grips with the Guilt and Truth.
Overall, it's a Long TV-Movie, originally shown over Two Nights and does seem a bit Shallow in Stretches and has Difficulties Maintaining a Profound and Consistent Message. But Overall, the some of the parts and the Acting make it a Good Study of the Man and His Time in and out of Power.
