The Movie the Grapes of Wrath depicts life during the depression in the 1930s
The Grapes of Wrath 1940 Directed by John Ford, this black and white epic drama, adapted from John Steinbeck's 1939 novel. The film honestly and realistically recreates the economic impact of the Great Depression and one representative family - the Joads. Highly awarded with seven Academy Award nominations for the film. Jane Darwell won for Best Supporting Actress and John Ford won for Best Director. Henry Fonda was applauded for one of his greatest film roles. The plight of the Joad family is portrayed as a microcosm of the thousands of migrant family's departure from their windy and dusty land, and their slow disintegration provides insight into the thousands of families who were evicted and uprooted from their "Dust Bowl" farm land, and forced to search westward in California for jobs and survival.
