Plot[ edit ] Two migrant field workers in California during the Great DepressionGeorge Milton Burgess Meredithan intelligent and quick-witted man despite his frequent claims of being "not that smart"and Lennie Small Lon Chaney Jr. Lennie's part of the dream, which he never tires of hearing George describe, is merely to tend to and touch soft rabbits on the farm.
George protects Lennie at the beginning by telling him that if Lennie gets into trouble George won't let him "tend them rabbits. While on a bus en route to the new ranch, Lennie — who, because of his mental disability, is prone to forget the simplest things or phrases but can only remember about the rabbits—asks George where they are going.
George is annoyed about this and tells him about the work cards they got at the bus entrance, which Lennie does remember, but incorrectly remembers having them in his pocket, since George has both of them. After being dropped off 10 miles from their destination, George and Lennie decide to camp for the night by the Salinas River.
When George points to Lennie the river, he runs to the river and dunks his whole head in it, drinking from it like an animal. George soon catches Lennie petting a dead bird, takes it away from him and throws it to the other side of the river for safety reasons.
When Lennie hears that they are going have beans for dinner, he requests ketchup, to which George responds that they do not have any. At night, as George and Lennie are eating beans for dinner, Lennie requests for the same thing, with George responding angrily, stating that whatever they do not have is what Lennie always wants to have.
This leaves Lennie puzzled, as he forgot that first response from earlier.
This also causes George to have a long speech about Lennie's ungratefulness, childlike behavior and why they had to escape from Weed. Eventually, George eases the tensions by telling Lennie his favorite story about their future farm before going to sleep.
The next day, they arrive at the ranch near Soledad. They meet Candy Roman Bohnenthe aged, one-handed ranch-hand with his ageing dog he raised since it was a puppy.

After meeting with the ranch boss, Jackson Oscar O'Sheathe pair are confronted by Curley, the small-statured jealous and violent son of the ranch owner, who threatens to beat Lennie to a pulp because of his height, as Curley hates men who are of large stature. To make matters worse, Curley's seductive, yet sadistic and conniving wife, Mae Betty Fieldto whom Lennie is instantly attracted, flirts with the other ranch hands.
George orders Lennie not to look at, or even talk to, her, as he senses the troubles that Mae could bring to the men. One night, Mae enters the barn in an attempt to talk with Slim Charles Bickford.
Even when Mae explains how her life has been during the Depression, Slim refuses to listen to her and shuns her, saying "You got no troubles, except what you bring on yourself" and tells her to go back to the house. When this statement causes Mae to sob, Slim is forced to give in and let her talk.
Back at the bunkhouse, Candy offers to join with George and Lennie after Carlson puts down his dog, so they can buy the farm and the dream appears to move closer to reality.
Curley appears and makes a scene in the bunkhouse as the workers mock him after he accused Slim of keeping company with his wife. George and Lennie's dream is over-shadowed when Curley catches Lennie laughing, grabs him from his bunk and starts punching him in the face repeatedly.
Instead of fighting back, Lennie asks for help from George, who tells him to fight back. Upon hearing George say this, Lennie catches Curley's hand and crushes it, not letting go until he finds out what he did. Slim gives Curley an ultimatum: If Curley does tell his father in retribution to get Lennie and George fired, Slim will tell everyone what happened.
Curley is told, for this reason, to say that he got his hand caught in a piece of machinery. On Saturday night, everyone, except Lennie, Candy and Crooks Leigh Whipper because of his raceare in town, enjoying themselves.
Crooks asks Lennie to stay in his room and Lennie explains to him about the farm that he, George and Candy are going to own, forgetting his promise to George not to tell this to anyone. Candy gets into the conversation too, and when George comes back first, he sees Lennie smoking a cigar and takes it away, guessing what Lennie had done.
At that moment, Mae enters the bunkhouse, trying to ask Crooks who crushed Curley's hand. When Crooks refuses to respond, Mae callously calls the four "bindlestiffs" in an attempt to belittle them.
When Candy responds with proof of what they are going to do in the future, Mae refuses to accept their American dream, calling him an "old goat. George tries to explain what they are going to do in the future, and that, if Mae keeps constantly flirting with them, she is going to cause the dream to crash.
The callous Mae refuses to listen, and, while looking for the person who crushed her husband's hand, sees Lennie's bloodied and bruised face, and she finds out that he is the one responsible. When Mae tries to be kind to Lennie and to "thank" him for what he did, George grabs her by the shoulder, berates her and tells her to return to the house.
Mae refuses to do so, saying that she has the right to talk to and flirt with whomever she comes across. Jackson, who happened to be standing by Crooks' door, catches George with his hand raised, with the intention to slap Mae across the face because of her arrogance and negligence.
Holding a horsewhip in his hand, Jackson silently dissuades him from doing so and to let Mae go back to the house unharmed. The next morning, Mae confronts Curley, who repeats the same statement Slim gave him earlier, but because Mae knows the truth, she taunts him, calling him "a punk with a crippled hand!
She continues to laugh hysterically until she starts to weep, realizing she is now done for.Of Mice and Men Guadalupe Dominguez June 3, Humanities Mrs. Nyhan Of Mice and Men Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck was a book that told .
