Tobacco Road synopsis

A poor family in rural Georgia struggles to make ends meet as the clan's father, Jeeter Lester (Charley Grapewin), proudly refuses help at every turn. Although the Lesters have thrived on their land for generations, Jeeter and his wife (Marjorie Rambeau) haven't prospered, and the outlook for the family is bleak. While many Lester children have left the farm, the none-too-bright Dude (William Tracy) and the gorgeous Ellie May (Gene Tierney) are still around to cause a fair share of drama.
