"Our Daily Bread" (1934) explores the underbelly of Utopia to inspire down-and-out depression-era filmgoers. King Vidor forewent the studio system to make this picture, chronicling the trials of laborers forced into creative pursuits and artists learningmanual labor. Corruption, frustration and hopelessness pervade this propagandist piece, starring Tom Keene, Karen Morley and Barbara Pepper, illustrating that no society is perfect past the stage of ideals, not even in our dreams.
