Uneven but affecting
11 December 2001 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

An odd, Grapes of Wrath sort of Depression feeling film. But filmed by Jean Renoir post WW2. Some of the shots and situations are deeply affecting and beautiful. But then there's the dreadful, cartoonish performance by Beulah Bondi. And then there are the wonderful performances by Zachary Scott, whom I had never valued before, and Betty Field. Historically interesting and certainly worth the time. Very Americana.
