20th Century Fox Original Scene Lobby Card for the John Ford masterpiece THE GRAPES OF WRATH (1940) starring Henry Fonda, Jane Darwell, John Carradine, Charley Grapewin, Dorris Bowdon, William Pawley, Paul Guilfoyde and Darryl Hickman. This film is the story of the Joad family, who are forced to leave their land in Oklahoma because of drought and poverty. The stunning black and white cinematography of Gregg Toland enhances the overwhelming feeling of desperation and emptiness that suffuses the entire film. When they decide to go to California to get jobs they've only heard about, they encounter every hardship imaginable along the way. And when they do finally arrive, they are forced to live in shantytowns and work for wages that barely prevent starvation. With incredibly powerful performances from the entire cast, this film remains a shockingly realistic yet poetic portrayal of the sufferings so many families experienced in the Great Depression. The film was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture. John Ford won the Oscar for Best Director and Jane Darwell deservedly won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her unforgettable performance as Ma Joad. This scene lobby card (11x14) had some damage to a small bottom area of the card. A small section of the lower right corner, extending along the bottom border in the white area was missing. We have had the card restored and it presents very well. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this lobby card is an authentic, vintage lobby from this film. One of the best lobby cards in the set as it summarizes the plight of the Joad family.
