''Grass'' was a hit, and allowed Cooper and Schoedsack to follow up with ''Film/{{Chang}}'', a similar documentary that was nominated for an AcademyAward for "Unique and Artistic Production". That film also did well, which allowed Cooper and Schoedsack to make a little movie called ''Film/KingKong1933''.

''Grass'' is a 1925 documentary film directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack. It is a record of the nomadic Bakhtiari tribe of Persia, as they make their seasonal migration to better pasture land. The filmmakers followed the Bakhtiari over the rugged desert of western Persia, across the unbridged Karun River, and over the nearly 14,000 foot Zard-Kuh Mountains, on their way to finding grass for their animals.
