An Acsdemy-winning adaptation of the novel by John Steinbeck.

A family of Oakies migrate from the dust bowl to California.

Surprisingly engaging. The only real problem I had with it is that certain characters have a tendency to monologue. They don't even bother pretending that it's part of a conversation; they just make speeches. Otherwise, it's very well done. ( )

between steinbeck and erksine caldwell one can catch the sense of the 1930s. the jode family's travels cannot be brought to the screen as well as it is written here. ( )
