The chapter first focuses on The General Died at Dawn, a melodrama set amid the political turmoil of contemporary China, a collaboration with playwright Clifford Odets, a newcomer to Hollywood. Starring Gary Cooper, Madeleine Carroll and Akim Tamiroff, it projected a controversial image of China that offended Chinese officials. A discussion Of Mice and Men, adapted from John Steinbeck’s novel, follows. This acclaimed film starred Lon Chaney, Jr., as mentally disabled farmworker Lennie, and received four Oscar nominations, including one for Aaron Copland’s score. It began Milestone’s long collaboration with art director Nicolai Remisoff, another Russian emigre.
