We will get back to you as soon as possible.

A stark look at the lives of migratory farm workers, focusing on one family. The film was Emmy nominated as the Outstanding Drama of the 1973-74 season.

One of our PNHS members, Faye Hickman, shares her experience of seeing the “stars” in town and meeting them. She said many towns people came out to watch. Take a look at her treasured photos, of this Moment in Movie History. Thank you Faye.

August 1973 in Berrytown

Note: Berrytown is no longer there, but it was the far west end of Port Norris.
We will add more information on Berrytown in the future.
