Members of a hard-working but desperately poor farming family, the Tuckers, struggle to survive as they transition from workers to sharecropping. Beulah Bondi overplays her part, but there are strong performances from the rest of the cast. Good film, if somewhat saccharine at times. Received Oscar nominations for Best Director, Best Dramatic Score, and Best Sound Recording.
