On the Death of Luise Rainer

Reading this morning the BBC News account of the death of Luise Rainer at the age of 104, it occurred to me that I do not think I have ever seen mention of The Good Earth in any movie-related articles in the San Francisco Chronicle; and I suspect that, with the exception of those who watch little more than Turner Classic Movies, those presented today with that title or Rainer's name would have absolutely no idea of the referents for those proper nouns.
