This remarkable film version of Steinbeck's novel was nominated for
seven Academy Awards , including for Best Picture, Actor (Henry
Fonda), Film Editing, Sound and Writing. John Ford won the Best
Director Oscar and actress Jane Darwell won Best Actress for her
portrayal of Ma Joad, the matriarch of the struggling migrant
farmer family. Following a prison term he served for manslaughter,
Tom Joad returns to find his family homestead overwhelmed by
weather and the greed of the banking industry. With little work
potential on the horizon of the Oklahoma dust bowls, the entire
family packs up and heads for the promised land - California. But
the arduous trip and harsh living conditions they encounter offer
little hope, and family unity proves as daunting a challenge as any
other they face. Source: 20th Century Fox Entertainment
