The Forgotten VillageDVD
John Steinbeck's powerful protest story about remote Mexican villagers trapped in a dark ages life of witchcraft and despair is brought vividly to life in this 1941 Pan-American Films production. Outstanding location photography by co-director Alexander Hackensmid and the employment of actual peasants instead of actors combine for a powerful cinematic experience. Two years prior, narrator Burgess Meredith achieved fame for his remarkable performance in Lewis Milestone's production Of Mice And Men.
