A Great Movie: The Grapes of Wrath

The GRAPES OF WRATH ranks at the top of my personal best movie ever list. Thanks go of course to the author and the exceptional Henry Fonda and Jane Darwell. The character actors assembled were all first rate. Two of the best were John Carradine as the fallen preacher and John Qualen as the actor who wouldn't leave his land. All in all a wonderful movie about a subject that befuddled correction. It took the advent of World War II to end the great depression.
