The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck( Visual )

76 editions published between 1940 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 4,045 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Ford's "The Grapes of Wrath" is a left-wing parable, directed by a right-wing American director, about how a sharecropper's son, a barroom brawler, is converted into a union organizer. Tom Joad, paroled convict, returns to his family farm in Oklahoma, only to learn the Joads have been "tractored off the land" and are joining the desperate migration to California. The grand Westward movement of American settlement finds small shareholders forced off their land by bankers and big landholders. "The Grapes of Wrath" expresses the nation's rage about the Depression in poetic, Biblical terms, and shows half a nation with the economic rug pulled out from under it. The story--about the resiliency and courage of "the people"--Is built on a foundation of fear: Fear of losing jobs, land, and self-respect. To those who have felt that fear, have gone hungry or been homeless, it will never become dated, while today its sense of injustice is perhaps even more relevant

Magazine writer Schuyler 'Phil' Green, a widower who has just arrived with his mother and young son in New York, is assigned the task of writing an expose of anti-Semitism. As he searches for a new angle on the topic, he decides to pass as a Jew for several months, which causes no end of trouble for his ailing mother and young son. It also puts his new society girlfriend on the spot, since despite all her intellectual convictions, she cannot quite shake the vicious prejudices of her particular group. In the 40s, Hollywood began exploring serious social problems in an upfront manner, and while a trifle too earnest for some people, this film puts the 'gentleman's agreement' among gentiles to discriminate against Jews directly in the spotlight

Young Mr. Lincoln by John Ford( Visual )

26 editions published between 1939 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 1,119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this unforgettable portrait of the early life of the Great Emancipator, young Mr. Lincoln, after teaching himself law, has barely started practicing when an Independence Day celebration ends with a stabbing. Abe first stops a lynch mob from killing brothers Matt and Adam Clay, and then defends them against a seasoned prosecutor and his crafty adviser. As presented here, Lincoln is a strong but peaceful frontier democrat, his quiet, awkward, folksy demeanor the outward manifestation of a deep humility, and a wise sadness at human folly. His awareness that his attempts to reconcile opposing forces--despite the occasional temporary victory--are doomed but necessary, hint at the character that will respond to the destiny that awaits him

Mankiewicz, Elia Kazan, Nunnally Johnson, and Otto Preminger ruled the sets; and when such blockbusters as The Grapes of Wrath, All About Eve, The King and I, Miracle on 34th Street, The Day the Earth Stood Still, How Green Was My Valley, Laura, Twelve O'Clock High, and Viva Zapata! filled the screen
