I remember telling my A Level Film Studies class about Darryl Zanuck. I told the pupils about the time when the classic film adaptation of John Steinbeck’s ‘The Grapes of Wrath’ (1941) was being made. I mentioned that Darryl was a republican but he went out of his way to explore the nature of the Great Depression and how it had affected the ordinary person. He genuinely did care about the project and worked very closely with the director (John Ford). As for Richard, many directors spoke very highly of him especially Steven Spielberg who worked with him on the classic blockbuster ‘Jaws’ (1975). These great people have left a massive mark on the development of film.
