Big Jim Folsom, Part 3: The Last Hurrah
In the conclusion of Robert Clem's award-winning film on Alabama's populist governor Big Jim Folsom, he ends his second term bereft of power due to his stand on the race issue and descent into alcoholism. He makes a comeback attempt in the 1962 election, going head to head with his former ally George. Wallace. But in an election eve broadcast on statewide television, Folsom appears to be drunk and any chance he had of winning is destroyed. Some believe he was slipped a mickey, while others feel it was the inevitable end of a flawed hero.
