Hi, I am teaching a new course on film and history of the Great Depression,
and I am having students compare the Steinbeck novel with the film release of
"The Grapes of Wrath." I am having a hard time finding details about the book's
translation to the screen, meaning what hoops did John Ford have to jump
through with author, studio (Fox) and the Production Code/Hays Office to get the
film made. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you very much, Kathy Fuller,
Georgia State University
