Poster for The Grapes of Wrath (1940)
“Moral influence can’t be measured. The artist does contribute to the moral climate of his time. . . . Did a film like The Grapes of Wrath play any part in arousing a social conscience in America? Or was it the result of the social awareness arising out of New Deal politics? Which is the cause and which is the effect? We are a part of history and we also make history.”
– Lindsay Anderson, as quoted in The Film Director as Superstar (1970)
