The Grapes of Wrath by John Ford( Visual )

9 editions published between 1939 and 2010 in English and held by 2,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Steinbeck's novel The Grapes of Wrath tells the specific story of the Joad family in order to illustrate the hardship and oppression suffered by migrant laborers during the Great Depression. It is an explicitly political tract that champions collectivist action by the lower classes over expressions of individualist self-interest and chastises corporate and banking elites for shortsighted policies meant to maximize profit even while forcing farmers into destitution and even starvation. -- from (Sep. 9, 2011)

The man who shot Liberty Valance by John Ford( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in German and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'homme qui tua Liberty VALANCE est devenu au même titre que la Chevauchée Fantastique un classique du genre western. James Stewart, sénateur tout-puissant de la ville de Shinbone, essaie de se débarrasser du plus dangereux criminel de la région : Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin). Seul John Wayne, solitaire et intrépide cowboy, peut exécuter cette périlleuse mission. Un scénario époustouflant, un réalisateur exceptionnel (John Ford) et un duo inédit, John Wayne et James Stewart, font de ce western une oeuvre admirable. (Source : jaquette)
