    Description

    The Grapes of Wrath (20th Century Fox, 1940). Photos (25) (8" X 10").
    "We'll go on forever, cause we're the people." Jane Darwell, in perhaps her finest role, sums up the plight and hope of the Okies and the rest of the country in this classic adaptation of John Steinbeck's Pulitzer and Nobel winning novel. Henry Fonda's lead performance as Tom Joad made Steinbeck "believe my own words." These photos perfectly capture the gritty despair, soul crushing hardship, and raw courage that both the novel and film sought to convey. Graded very high, the photos display only minor flaws, such as one with a tear in the right border, one with a corner bend and light stain, and all with slight curling and toning. Seventeen of the photos have typed publicity snipes attached to the verso that fold up along the front edge, and three have residue on the verso from a previously attached snipe. Very Fine.
