| The story of two brothers who choose different paths.
Chris--snob/ashamed of roots Walt--stayed on farm

Taken in context, "Golden Harvest" is a great look at the 1930s. At that time, farmers were abandoning the land to move to cities and the Depression took its toll on the farmers who remained and worked the land.

The story is about two brothers who grew up on the farm. Walt (Richard Arlen) loves farming and can imagine himself doing nothing else...and so on the farm he remained through the story. Chris (Chester Morris) on the other hand longs for something else and soon moves to Chicago to try his hand at working the commodities market. With his background as a farmer, he's got a bit of an edge on his competition. However, at times, Chris makes a ton of money when the farmers are in dire trouble and prices are at their lowest. Eventually, Walt and Chris work together to try to create a stronger market for wheat...that way they'll both win...if it works.

The story of farming and the like may not sound that interesting, but it is a nice history lesson and the film has some excellent performances. Not exactly a must-see, but a very good film and one worth your time.
