    DreamWorks, Steven Spielberg Plan To Bring Back Tom Joad With New Version Of John Steinbeck’s ‘The Grapes Of Wrath’

    DreamWorks is in talks with the estate of author John Steinbeck to make a new version of The Grapes Of Wrath.

    I don't think remaking classics is a very good idea. But I worked with a group of college kids who had to watch the film for a class. They liked the book but despised the movie. It was just too old for them. It's hard to imagine anyone but Fonda in the film.

    Thanks for this may,
    and you make a good point in favour of remakes!
    I am sure non of my kids would get past two or three minutes of the original great movie,
    but a remake well, I am sure with modern actors and cinematography, why not?

    Welcome to The John Ford Forum

    The names John Ford and Duke Wayne are linked together,
    forever in the history of movies.
    They had a chemistry which probably no other star and director had or will have
    they had great devotion for one another, more like father and son.

    Following on from Raoul Walsh and Robert North Bradbury,
    Ford singularly made John Wayne the star,
    and ultimately John Wayne the Legend.

    With more and more new threads and topics being discussed,
    we have now outgrown Ford's entry in the 'Pals of the Saddle' forum.

    We have therefore formed The John Ford Forum
    to help us expand and discuss more freely
    the comprehensive work of this great director.

    I was always curious about any John Ford/Richard Widmark connection. Ford spent quite a bit of time of the set of The Alamo, and had to know Duke and Widmark weren't the best of friends. I personnally have always been a fan of Richard Widmark and all his work. But I wonder why Ford ended up starring Widmark in Two Rode Together and Cheyenne Autumn. I would have to guess that John Ford either liked Richard Widmark inspite of any problems Duke had with him. Or possibly the studios forced Widmark on him-but I doubt that. Does anyone have any info on that situation?

    According to Harry Carey Jr. in his book Company of Heroes,
    on the set of Two Rode Together,
    Widmark and Ford had a 'mutual admiration society',
    with him being 'amazed' at Ford's directional skills.
    According to Harry, Ford 'loved' Widmark,
    and is quoted as saying


    Even a gone screwy Ford is
    a hundred times better, than all those other idiots.

    There seems no doubt that Widmarks opinion of Duke,
    did not make the slightest difference to his relationship with Ford.

    A great moody, broody classic film.
    I think this is a great movie, with JF at his best.
    Henry Fonda is at his most superb as Tom Joad,
    and Joan Darwell, who won an Oscar
    for her portayal as Ma, was magnificent.
    A couple of Duke 'Pals' and JF's Stock company here,

    Plot Summary

    Set in the Thirties, Oklahoma is a dustbowl.
    Tom Joad returns to his home after a jail sentence
    to find his family kicked out of their farm due to forecloseure.
    He catches up with them on his Uncles farm,
    and joins them the next day as they head for California and a new life.
    After terrible trials en route they become little more than slave labor.
    However Tom and his family refuse to knuckle under.

    Based on the John Steinbeck novel.
