A “classic film” that is gripping to watch, rather than something to be gotten through so you can check it off your list. Henry Fonda is good, but Jane Darwell as Ma Joad steals every scene. Also interesting: to see how different things were 35 years before my birth.
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home

This is one of my favorite scratch-offs so far.
The first time I watched this classic was at a free movie showing on Boston Common.
I found this one rather predictable.
One thought on “Three sentence movie reviews: The Grapes of Wrath”
I love that the film stands up to the test of time. As you say, it is not common with such classics. I have one seen one of these: the Christmas classic with the obvious scratch off.
