Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning writer and director Elia Kazan ("On the Waterfront," "A Streetcar Named Desire") tells the true story of the early life of his uncle, Greek-immigrant Stavros Topouzoglow, whose optimistic dreams of a turn-of-the-century America quickly collide with cold, hard reality. Despite the casual cruelties, betrayals, and career setbacks he experiences in his new homeland, he forms strong and lasting friendships that help him weather the worst. Nominated for Academy Awards for Best Picture; Best Director; and Best Writing, Story and Screenplay, this feature won an Academy Award for the painstakingly accurate art direction of Gene Callahan.
