Grapes of Wrath (1940)

Guthrie wasn't the only one interested in exploring the Dust Bowl theme—the same year he released Dust Bowl Ballads, Hollywood got on board with this classic film.

Bound For Glory (1976)

This film dramatizes Guthrie's story, apparently with some success and even accuracy.

Carnivàle (TV series, 2003-2005)

This is a fascinating series about a group of circus freaks traveling the Dust Bowl and beyond in the mid-1930s. It gives a new, strange color to the tales of Steinbeck and the songs of Guthrie, and you only have to watch the first episode to get a taste of a dust storm.
