R.I.P.: John D. Loudermilk

He was enormously successful all over the place during his prime years. So I’m sure even his departed spirit would not give a fig what I think about most of his work — kinda dated. But there’s no denying “Tobacco Road,” though for a long time what I most like pointing out about it is that it must have something to do with the very potent 1932 novel by Erskin Caldwell, Tobacco Road.

That’s what I’d recommend seeking out on this occasion.
