5.0 out of 5 stars USA 1940, 25 Aug 2009
This review is from: The Grapes Of Wrath [DVD] [1940] (DVD)
An ioutstanding film mirroring the problems of the USA economy arising from the great depressionof the 1930's. California had the weather and crops and needed people whereas Oklahoma had drought and depresion. Virtually no welfare for anyone thus migrants left the dustbowl for California only to find that they were still exploited by the fruit growers who wanted to pay as little as possible to mifgrant labour. However the humanity of some Californians comes through in a moving story of an American family leaving their roots and starting a new life with hope - something Americans have in abundance. Black and white actually enhances the seriousness of the subject material. A film not to mis by anyone interested in the cinemas. Interestingly the photography was by Gregg Toland who a year later photographed one of the worlds greatest films - Citizen Kane.
