Inception Media Group have revealed that they are planning to bring to Blu-ray director King Vidor's Our Daily Bread (1934), starring Karen Morley, Tom Keene and Barbara Pepper. The preliminary release date set by the studio is April 16th.
Lost souls, haunted by vice, seek a better future on a gritty "back to the land" commune in King Vidor's Great Depression epic drama. Idle masons, plumbers and carpenters are put to work creating, while former white-collar professionals are retrained in the art of manual labor. But all utopias have a dark side. Despite the overriding pioneering spirit; lust, proffering and deceit tarnish the ideals of the freethinking farmers while frustration and hopelessness corrode their dreams. The earthy love of a good woman inspires a sweeping climax as the community is forced to work together or face ruin.
A mid-period film by legendary director King Vidor, Our Daily Bread is evocative depression-era propaganda, made outside the mainstream studio system, as a way of inspiring thousands of dissolute moviegoers looking for a way out of poverty.
