    So, Shia LaBeouf & Marilyn Manson Collaborated On A Book & Short Film Titled 'Born Villain'

    The Grapes of Wrath

    In 1995, when Bruce Springsteen recorded the title song for his moody, introspective album, The Ghost of Tom Joad, he was not only thinking about the leading character of a famous John Steinbeck novel concerning the Depression plight of displaced Okies, but also of Henry Fonda’s unforgettable portrayal of this role in the celebrated 1940 John Ford film version of THE GRAPES OF WRATH (available on DVD).
