A fine but not great adaptation
23 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a fine adaptation of one of the great Depression Era novels, rivaling The Grapes of Wrath. Harry Hamlin gives a believable portrayal of Studs but he is a bit too old to be seen in knickers playing Studs as an 11 year old youth. The final 2 episodes are earth shattering and worthy of this review. In fact I was so moved by the finale that I became a confirmed alcoholic to experience the rough times Studs experienced. I am now a bum in the Bowery but they still call me Fungo. i suppose that Hamlin was quite adequate for the part but his mothers portrayal by Colleen Dewhurst was vivid and honest. Dewhurst was subsequently seen in the Sean Connery film Outland where she portrayed a lady scientist who eventually decides to aid Connery in taking down the boss of this outer space mining colony.
