Of Mice and Men

Directed by Lewis Milestone
United States, 1939


This adaptation of John Steinbeck’s novel remains the most potent treatment of the classic Depression-era story. A mentally disabled giant and his level headed guardian find work at a sadistic cowboy’s ranch, as they try to make ends meet while dreaming of a modest future tilling their own land.
