We watched the 1940’s edition of “The Grapes of Wrath” over weekend. What a wonderful movie, heart-felt with simple prose delivered honestly and with the conviction you expect from such a great source.

What we’ve been trying to say is that “The Grapes of Wrath” is just about as good as any picture has a right to be; if it were any better, we just wouldn’t believe our eyes.” — NYT’s
