The detective story of wretched white folks in the South -- the lazy Jeeter Lester and his crave-suffering wife -- is cleaned up a part for the silver screen and stresses comedy more than rural crudeness.
Ford's adaptation of Jack Kirkland's play, based on Erskine Caldwell's , returns to similar vicinity he had depicted so successfully in The Grapes of Wrath, but this is a more yukky, less life-or-death film. Jeeter Lester (Grapewin) is the listless, ne'er-do-well patriarch in a kind of hillbilly farmers. Their ancestors were wealthy planters, but at the moment their tractable-going existence is threatened by a bank's seek to their land. The film was compromised with censorship concerns (the play and book are much bawdier) and more stagy than you would expect from Ford, but Tobacco Access still manages to be engaging, curious and genuinely subversive.
