| Interesting docu on depression era well worth your time
Documentary on the depression era that begins at the crash and documents the horrible results on the country. Uses newsreel footage along with some hollywood film footage as well - it can be a little confusing since there are sometimes interspersed together. All in all a very well put together showing of that time in american history with some rare footage and songs of the time. on a scale of one to ten... 8
