Impressive adaptation of Steinbeck's novel.
On the indicated level a marvelous job of production, direction, and acting has been done.
The natural state of humanity is to be kind to each other, Steinbeck says - holding George and Lennie up as an imperfect example.
Milestone's version is the most powerful adaptation of John Steinbeck' touching story of two drifters in Depression era America, played by Burgess Meredith and Lon Chaney and brilliantly scored by Aaron Copeland.
A wonderful adaptation of Steinbeck's novel with Lon Chaney Jr. giving a break-out performancel that propelled him to stardom. Cowboy star Bob Steele also gets to show his acting chops in the supporting role of Curley. A winner.
Inventive filming of the Steinbeck novel with a classic performance by Chaney
want to see this because it was nominated for best picture at the oscars and by NBR
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.
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.
This often overlooked version of Of Mice and Men is truly great and seriously underrated. The chemistry between Burgess Meredith's (by the way, it was incredibly weird to see a young Burgess Meredith) George and Lon Chaney Jr's Lenny is truly inspired. Its every bit as heartbreaking as you remember the book to be. The acting's stupendous, as are the direction and photography. Great opening sequence, too. The scene where Candy puts his dog down was irrepressibly sad--almost as bad as the final scene. Of Mice and Men isn't exactly the feel good hit of the summer, but its a damn fine movie.
