We're back in America for our next film 'The Grapes Of Wrath' which was a 1939 novel by John Stienbeck, well known for 'Of Mice And Men' and 'East of Eden'.

Set during the great depression, the film version was released in 1940 and starred Henry Fonda in the title role of Tom Joad. The film follows a family of migrant workers travelling to California toward a better life.

Both the book and the film are considered American classics in their own right. Join Mark & Sarah as they learn what this film is about and how it stands up today.
