Audience Reviews for Of Mice and Men

  • Apr 11, 2020
    John Steinbeck's poetic take of drifter blue collar dreams are embodied so well by the 1939 cast that they raise an imperfect look at the societally marginalized to nearly perfect heights. Burgess Meredith, Lon Chaney Jr., Charles Bickford, et al, give enunciation to the plight of those who are at the lowest rung of society, who dreadfully know it, and gamely live with the knowledge, fearful of the day when they might be fit to be "put down" like an old dog, even as they put down those they feel better than. A memorable work, and justifiably so.

    Burgess Meredith and Lon Chaney both bring the level of gravity needed for one of Steinbeck's best pieces of work. An epic film of an epic work.

    No wonder why Lon Chaney Jr. was propelled to stardom after shining as Lennie in this solid adaptation of Steinbeck's good story, as he finds the perfect tone for a mentally disabled character who could have become really irritating if played by a lesser actor.
