Fact of the Day: Russian Grapes

The 1940 film The Grapes of Wrath (based on the novel by John Steinbeck) was originally allowed to be shown in the Soviet Union because it showed plight under capitalism. Soviet officials later reversed their decision because someone pointed out that even the poorest Americans had cars in the movie.
