The Day of the Locust is a 1939 novel by American author Nathanael West, set in Hollywood, California during the Great Depression, depicting the alienation and desperation of a disparate group of individuals who exist at the fringes of the movie industry. In 1975 a film based on the novel was made, starring William Atherton as Tod Hackett, Donald Sutherland as Homer Simpson and Burgess Meredith as Harry Greener.
