The Good Earth is a 1937 romance drama directed by Sidney Franklin, Victor Fleming (uncredited) and Gustav Machaty (uncredited) and adapted by Talbot Jennings, Tess Slesinger and Claudine Wes. Wang Lung (Paul Muni) is a quaint farmer who loves his wife, O-Lan (Luise Rainer). As the two live together, they grow rich and have two children. Unfortunately, a drought occurs that forces them away from their farm to the city, where they must start from scratch. After begging and stealing to get by, the drought comes to an end. After O-Lan joins the local mob in the raid of a rich home, the family can afford to move back north to their farm. Things are not the same when they return, though they are welcome in their own home. What is to become of them now that they are back on top of things? The story originates from the novel of the same name, written in 1931, by Pearl S. Buck.moreless
