Betty Field - Of Mice and Men (1939) - Framed Picture - 12" x 16"
Of Mice and Men is a 1939 American drama film based on the 1937 play based on the novella by American author John Steinbeck.
The film starred Burgess Meredith, Betty Field and Lon Chaney Jr.
The film tells the story of two men, George and his mentally-challenged partner Lennie, trying to survive during the dustbowl of the 1930s and pursuing a dream of owning their own ranch, instead of always working for others.
It was nominated for four Academy Awards. The musical score was by American composer Aaron Copland. Running in theaters in 1939, it disappeared for many years at a time until the 1980s and 1990s, when it slowly appeared in revival theater houses, video and cable.
