The Grapes of Wrath (1940) – Classic Movie Review:


Here’s my YouTube Video and Classic Movie Review of the film The Grapes of Wrath starring Henry Fonda, Jane Darwell, John Qualen and John Carradine. Directed by John Ford. This is considered by AFI as one of the TOP 100 FILMS OF ALL TIME!

The Grapes of Wrath, based on the classic novel of the same name by John Steinbeck, is a heavy film drama about the Joad family who loses their family farm in Oklahoma during the Great Depression in the 1930’s.  They venture across the United States in a beat up old jalopy with the entire family toward California to find work as migrant farmers.

They can’t wipe us out they can’t lick us … we’ll go on forever pa, cuz we’re the people.

– Ma Joad, The Grapes of Wrath
