All The King's Men (Russian: Vsya korolevskaya rat', Вся королевская рать) is a 1971 Soviet TV mini-series, adaptation of Robert Penn Warren's novel of the same name.

Title[edit]

The movie's title matches that of the Russian translation of Warren's novel: Вся королевская рать, literally Whole King's Host. Just like in the source material, it's a line from the famous nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty, translated by Samuil Marshak:

Шалтай-Болтай
Сидел на стене.
Шалтай-Болтай
Свалился во сне.
Вся королевская конница,
Вся королевская рать
Не может Шалтая,
Не может Болтая,
Шалтая-Болтая,
Болтая-Шалтая,
Шалтая-Болтая собрать!
