Review

This 1940 adaptation of John Steinbeck’s 1939 classic, the riveting tale of the Joad family on their journey from Oklahoma to California, doesn’t quite manage the novel’s almost baroque rage at capitalism, but Ford finds in Henry Fonda’s iconic lead performance the perfect vessel for conveying rugged yet tender populism.
