White Bondage is a very good little movie from the Depression era concerning an agent from the agriculture department who comes to the aid of tenant farmers in the Deep South. It's surprisingly well acted by a cast of relative unknowns, and directed by Nick Grinde, not the first name that comes to one's mind when thinking of great film-makers. He does a fine job with this movie, though, which, contrary to the belief of many in our time shows that government can be a force for good, and actually help poor people rather than merely take their tax dollars in order to support fat-cat Washington bureaucrats.
