Yesterday's Trivia Answer: Ellen Burstyn played the ruthless grandmother
I read it in high school. Movie was in black and white, but I don't remember the year.ReplyDelete
Yeah, that was a hard trivia question...Delete
I saw the movie when I took a films class in high school. It's so hard to imagine now but it was shown on a projector with a film reel. That makes me feel 105 years old LOL.ReplyDelete
Hahaa...I'm there with you, Julie.Delete
You are killing me with all of these classics. Kind of feeling like a literary ignoramus. I'm sure there will be one book where I'll raise my hand in the air and yell that I've read it.ReplyDelete
You're not an ignoramus, Nana.Delete
I haven't read this book. I think it was probably "too tame" or "boring" when I was younger. Now I think I would find it very interesting. Funny how our tastes change as time passes. I didn't see the movie, either, so I have no idea.ReplyDelete
Ellen Burstyn? Really. I like her a lot. She has been in so many great films and one TV show I really liked, though that was quite a few years ago now. She usually plays a likable character. That was a real deviation for her.
Yes it was.Delete
I have not read The Grapes of Wrath yet, will add it to my TBR list.ReplyDelete
This is one that I haven't read yet, though I know it's supposed to be one of the great classics :) Maybe some day!ReplyDelete
My guess would be in the late 1940s. 1947, if I had to choose a year. 1951 at the latest.ReplyDelete
We had the book assigned for English in high school.
I'm sorry to say I haven't read the book or seen the movie. I'll have to fix that this year!ReplyDelete
It's an oldie but a goodie.Delete
I remember reading this in high school, but I never saw the movie.ReplyDelete
The movie is good.Delete
I haven't read the book but would like to, and will add it to my list :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for dropping by Sharon.Delete
I don't know the year but I saw the movie. I have the book but haven't read it.ReplyDelete
It's on my short list of classics. I can't wait to get to it, but I have to finish 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Gone with the Wind first. I didn't realize there was a movie, but I'm going to have to check it out.ReplyDelete
I've read the book a couple of times. Sadly, many people resent it since it is part of the forced school reading regimen. Never seen the movie, though.ReplyDelete
Kids find it as a chore...Delete
The book published in 1939 and the movie in 1940. I knew people whose family came to California because of the dust bowl and struggled to make a living. Steinbeck was an excellent writer.ReplyDelete
The movie received a number of nominations for the Oscars.
You're so good...Delete
I've never seen the movie, but I did need to read the book for one of my classes in high school...heh.ReplyDelete
