1941 Rated NR 1hr 24m

Poor but proud farmer Jeeter Lester (Charley Grapewin), the patriarch of a sprawling Georgia clan, tries to fend off eviction and protect his family during the Great Depression in this classic from director John Ford. Lester's pride drives him to refuse several offers of help, but his lazy lifestyle and equally shiftless relatives do little to help raise enough money to pay the rent in this comedy based on Erskine Caldwell's famed novel.
