She endangers their positions on the ranch through her behaviour. In that movie the actor who played him really looked the part. It highlighted the fact that it was her negative life experiences that made her act in the way she did.
George and Candy call her by other names such as "jailbait" or "tart. She simply has nothing to do and nobody to talk to. For Candy, the barriers are age and handicap.
Steinbeck seems to show, through Curley's wife, that even the worst of us have our humanity. She was going to accuse him of sexual assault and his black skin she knew would add to the problem. The candidate makes the point that Curley's wife is manipulative but fails to back this up with evidence - an investigation of the language chosen by Steinbeck may have shown how she is sexually manipulative, but does not appear to be sexually overt with Lennie in the barn - perhaps an interesting discussion point.

The two are fleeing from their previous employment as workmen in Weed, California where Lennie was accused of attempted rape when he touched and held onto a young woman Moira Harris and her red dress, prompted by his love of stroking soft things.

Furthermore, the men are paid so little that it is difficult to save enough to make a dream come true.
The workers think she is trouble. Curley cares most about looking strong.
This shows a huge lack of respect for her as nobody once throughout called her by her own name. I think the second movie did the best rendering of Crooks.
When we and George and Lennie are first introduced to her, Steinbeck takes a long time to describe her. Hence, he must rely on George to protect him. But he changed, and he changed goddamn quick. The candidate achieves All band 4 as well as 5.
The second movie also did a very good job of depicting him. I liked Curley best in the first movie. After a hard day's work, George is proud of Lennie's work load and gets Lennie his puppy.
Crooks represents another type of powerlessness. Curley's wife enters and tries to speak to him, admitting she is lonely and how her dreams of becoming a movie star were crushed, revealing the reason she flirts with the ranch hands.
Her beauty is such that perhaps that dream might have come true. That is why he wanted to leave his money to George and Lennie.The identity of Curley's wife in Carlisle Floyd's Of mice and men Jacqueline Lang Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, ed.
