35mm. Approx. 174 min.

“People waiting, people waiting.” On the run from Turkish oppression, a Greek boy’s ruthless struggle to a new life in America – the true story of Kazan’s uncle and naturally one his most personal works. And with it superb acting by an unknown cast; the sense of period, of place, and face and atmosphere; and the epic sense of what immigration cost, and what it meant. An unsung American classic, and Kazan’s personal favorite.


“Elia Kazan gives a penetrating, thorough and profoundly affecting account of the hardships endured and surmounted at the turn of the century by a young Greek lad.”
