A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

1945 NR

Set in the early 1900s, Elia Kazan's first film centers on a poor Brooklyn family struggling not only to survive, but to improve their meager existence. Young Francie (Peggy Ann Garner) worships her father, Johnny (James Dunn), despite his alcoholism. Mother Katie (Dorothy McGuire) holds the family together as an impetuous aunt (Joan Blondell) keeps everyone on their toes. Dunn and Garner each won Oscars for their performances.
