Watch Blaze

"A governor. A stripper. Forced to chose between the office he held and the woman he loved, he chose both."

Toward the end of "Blaze," the following exchange takes place between the film's two central characters: Earl K. Long: "Would you still love me just as much if I wasn't the fine governor of the great state of Louisiana?" Blaze Starr: "Would you still love me just as much if I had small tits and worked in a fish house?"

Earl K Long and Blaze Starr: It is apparent from the movies introduction are well-endeared toward each other. In fact the endearment carries through to the film’s conclusion. Earl K. Long is the kind of drunk; snaky Governor of Louisiana and Blaze is a hillbilly who becomes a famous showgirl type of performer. The governor and Blaze like one another for several important reasons inclusive of their attraction to each other. Naturally he likes the way Blaze looks and she likes Earl’s power as Louisiana Governor. Also: the two characters are alike in many ways. They study human-beings. Each started out honest enough; and as a consequence each having to fight the odds of that in-born honesty.

The movie is based on the autobiography of Blaze Starr. The audience may wonder if she was truly as clueless or her performing career as simplified as illustrated in the film. That aside, the premise of the movie is about a relationship between a man who did not care what anyone thought and a woman
