Description: Revised Temporary script for the 1940 film. Based on the 1939 novel by John Steinbeck.The now-famed story of a suffering sharecropper family forced to relocate, John Ford's film adaptation stays true to the tone of Steinbeck's original, which was published only three months before producer Zanuck acquired the rights. The ending to the film varies significantly from that of the book, with Steinbeck's acknowledgment of the need for such a change. Winner of two Academy Awards and nominated for five others, including Best Picture.
