Pilon, Danny, the Pirate—paisanos all—live a free-spirited life near seaside Monterey. Danny becomes a man of property as the heir to two modest houses and a watch from his grandfather. Too bad that inheritance isn’t something worthwhile—like wine or money. But a gorgeous, newly arrived cannery worker named Sweets thinks a man of property may himself be worthwhile…and marriageable. Spencer Tracy, John Garfield, Hedy Lamarr, and Frank Morgan bring Hollywood gloss to this affectionate adaptation of John Steinbeck’s breakthrough novel. Morgan earned a "Best Supporting Actor" Oscar nomination for his charming work. In his 1942 review for The New York Times, Bosley Crowther called the picture, “As genial a bit of propaganda for common vagrancy as has ever been shown.”
