Of Mice and Men review

A film focuses primarily on a street smart George Milton (Burgess Meredith) and his mentally challenged partner Lennie Small (Lon Chaney, Jr.). The acting was believable and score just empathetic. Nominated for Best Picture, Best Sound Recording (Elmer A. Raguse), Best Musical Score, Best Original Score, the production obviously well crafted.

The film centers on two traveling workmen, one of whom suffered a crippling head injury at childhood. They begin work on an old farm where they try their hardest not to get fired. Unfortunately, this is pretty difficult when you have a giant, dimwit...
