In this faithful adaptation of Steinbeck's classic novella, a boy bonds with a horse to escape his family's constant bickering. This version (see below for another) was written by Steinbeck himself, was directed by the great Lewis Milestone, and is graced by an evocative Aaron Copeland score.

1973; 100 min

This newer version, made for TV, features a great performance by Henry Fonda as the boy's father, and won a Peabody Award for outstanding drama special.
