Analyses

submitted by Clay Hudson

Families may have made up a significant portion of the audience because of the presentation of the Disney cartoon. The pairing of a movie based on a Steinbeck novel and a Disney cartoon seems odd, but each would have appealed to the two different audiences of the family, the parents and the children.
