Good Earth video I love this film. It's epic storytelling on a grand scale and timeless viewing. I was thrilled to see it being released on DVD , UNFORTUNATELY it seems there was little if any restoration on the print used.

Good Earth DVD Features
Good Earth, The
First came marriage, an arranged union of peasant farmer Wang Lung (Paul Muni) and kitchen slave O-Lan (Luise Rainer). Then, through poverty and wealth, family and betrayal, war and pestilence, came love.
From Pearl S. Buck's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Good Earth combines Wang and O-Lan's story with a sweeping saga of China in upheaval. Muni and Rainer had both won 1936 Academy Awards?,* and Rainer repeated here with another Best Actress Oscar?.* The film also won for Best Cinematography - with camerawork most powerfully on display in the astonishing locust-plague sequence. Producer Irving Thalberg, known for combining literary prestige with commercial success, died during the production, and the film is dedicated to him.
