Movie Version of Grapes Of Wrath - The People and the Depression :: Movie Film comparison compare contrast
Movie The Grapes Of Wrath - The concourse and the Depression       In the exposure The grapes of Wrath, the Joads undergo the hit of the picture, they have to diverge their farm.  They go to California for jobs, howeverfind there are fewer jobs, and it pays little, or at least less then what theywere told.  The authorities well-tried to lead programs to house and employ plentylike the Joads.  Since the people who already lived in the cities in which thesedevelopments were put didnt want them there anyway, they tried to start a riotand have the police Arrest them.  Although in the movie the plan was foiled, itcould have worked in many other places, or the towns tribe could have justcreated a lynch mob, and eventually the people spiritedness in the development wouldleave.         I believe that the economic situation of the rural has a great loadon the fall, or succession of people like the Joads, ba rely I dont believegovernment programs will effect them at all.  For example, the great depressionwas a major economical event, and it greatly effected more then just people likethe Joads, but programs like the public works administration which usepeople for government construction projects.  Another program,  the WorksProgress court, later called the Works Projects Administration wascreated to develop relief programs, and to keep a persons skills.  From 1935-1943, it employed 8 trillion people, and spent 11 billion dollars.  But in 1939,there were lifelessness 9.5 million still unemployed.  Another program was the CivilianConservation Corps.  Unemployed, unmated young men were enlisted to work onconservation and resource-development projects such as soil conservation, floodcontrol, and protection of forests and wildlife. These men were provided withfood, lodging, and other necessities, and were given a small monthly salary.Another program was the CW A, the civil works administration.  It employed morethen 4 million workers to build and repair roads, and inform in schools, werejust a couple of the jobs.         Some of these programs would work temporarily, but eventually therewould be no more work to do, or the government would run out of funds.  Allthese programs were hated by some, and love by others, and some just didntcare.  The business men that were lucky full not to lose everything, and theother employees working in the cities who still had jobs during the depressiondidnt like these new programs.  In the movie, The Grapes Of Wrath, The townspeople didnt like the government funded interpretation of a Hooverville.
