The Grapes of Wrath, 1940
Oklahoma in the Thirties is a dustbowl and dispossessed farmers migrate westward to California. After terrible trials en route they become little more than slave labor. Among the throng are the Joads who refuse to knuckle under.
This motion picture provides strong vivid images of a dustbowl era as well as a disenchanted rural America during the hardships of the Great Depression.
Based on the classic novel by John Steinbeck.
