I came across this movie on the "late late late" show in about 1984. Do you remember the plight of the American farmer in the early 1980's?
Ralph Waite from the Waltons played the lead as a father and farmer who had lost his farm to big business. The family heads to Florida to rebuild their lives because they have heard rumors of how prosperous life is growing fruit in the orange belt.
Once they arrive the family is forced into working as fruit pickers for pennies just to survive. They live through hell as they end up working as slave laborers, (unknown to them until payday of course where they find they owe their employer more than they earned during the week.) The longer they stay the worse things get and it becomes impossible to leave.
One of my most memorable features of this movie is the line "I's the cook, I gets 2 bottles of wine, I don't pick no 'maters and cukes no more, I's the cook."
This is a very good movie, with great actors. You will find yourself routing for the family in short time. I experienced anger, sadness, joy and tension during this show. A very good movie!
I highly reccomend it!

I've been looking for this item for years and was really pleased when I found someone who had a copy. I was hoping to find a DVD of this film but had to settle for ordering it on VHS. the film was watchable but because the tracking varies on each recorder it wasn't the best but still happy that I've seen the film again after all this time.

Unintentionally, this is one of the most hilarious films ever made. I love it. It features "Daddy" from The Waltons and Jennifer Jason Leigh, the hot ho from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. I had seen this film on television back in the 1980s and couldn't get it out of my head. In the 1990s, I bought a VHS copy on Ebay for about 20 bucks. The story is such a blatant ripoff of Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath" combined with tidbits from "Of Mice And Men" that it cannot help but bring a chuckle to the mildly educated. Also, the stupidity of John Walton's family and the people who live in Angel City is hilarious as they allow themselves to be strong-armed into living as slaves in a work camp that is run by like 2 guys. The ending riot scene will put a smile on your face for days. In "Of Mice and Men", the main character talks about the dream of someday owning a farm...in this film, the dream is to someday own a fruit stand. This movie is well-worth watching....unintentional humor at it's best!

Angel City VHS, great movie about the hardships of the fruit and vegetable pickers in the south. They are hard workers and they lead hard lives. Ralph waite is great in the role of the father, jennifer jason leigh is a great actress.Great movie worth watching.
