The Grapes of Wrath (1940)

Rated NR

Based on John Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Tom Joad leads his family from Oklahoma to California during the dust bowl. Starring Henry Fonda, Jane Darwell, John Carradine

One of the best films ever to be adapted from a novel. John Ford’s adaption was brilliantly told. It’s a great representation of the dust bowl and depression that isn’t always told. To help with the great directing comes great cinematography by Gregg Toland. Add to the story and cinematography is great performances from the cast. It’s all around best film from story, directing, cinematography, and acting. It’s a can’t miss film about the depression.
