Bondi tested for the role of Ma Joad in "The Grapes of Wrath" (1940) and was led to believe she had the part. The actress donned appropriate garb and went to live in a migrant camp in Bakersfield, California as research only to return to discover that the role had gone to Jane Darwell.

Bondi also did a couple of days shooting as Aunt Polly replacing an ill May Robson in "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" (1938) but Robson recovered and resumed the part.
