In Dubious Battle


In Dubious Battle
Adapted from the 1936 John Steinbeck novel, itself based on historical events, about a strike in California apple country, where nine hundred migratory workers rose up ’’in dubious battle’’ against the landowners. The group took on a life of its own... stronger than its individual members and more frightening. Led by the doomed Jim Nolan, the strike was founded on his tragic idealism, on the ’’courage never to submit or yield.’’
