Movie as good as the book

This is one case where the movie, The Grapes of Wrath, is to this viewer as good as the book. This black and white film depicts faithfully John Steinbeck's impressions of the plight of those dustbowl victims and other depressed areas coming to California to find the golden life. It depicts the good and bad of human nature.
