Inspired by his uncle’s hardscrabble journey from Constantinople to Ellis Island in the 1890s, Kazan adapted his own novel for this epic, perhaps the ultimate filmic account of the self-preservation instincts required to reach the land of opportunity. A wholly immersive experience, with a cast of masterful unknowns and stunning black-and-white location photography by Haskell Wexler.
