The innocence of Lon Chaney Jr's character, Lenny, is brilliantly captured by artist Rene Peron on this stunning large format poster from the first release of this John Steinbeck adaptation in France. Burgess Meredith and Betty Field also star in this tragedy about farm workers who dream of a better life, despite the sadistic treatment they receive while working on a ranch during the Depression. Chaney's performance as the giant, Lenny, is nothing shy of brilliant, and to this day is regarded as one of his best.
