Buttolph, David (1902–83)

Tobacco Road (1941)

Based on the novel by Erskine Caldwell (1903–87).



Main Title/Tobacco Road

The scene following the opening credits seems to be a parody response to the opening of Gone with the Wind, including a chorus humming the melody “Dixie,” and also the phrase “gone with the wind” in the voice-over narration.
