The Nut Farm is a 1935 American film directed by Melville W. Brown, adapted from the John Charles Brownell Broadway play of the same name, which ran for 40 performances from 14 Oct.-Nov. 1929 at the Biltmore Theater (now the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre).[1] Wallace Ford is the titled star and the only cast-member common to the play and film. According to the New York Times film review, other than Ford, "There is not much else for it to boast about."[2]
