Composed entirely of archival material and narrated by actor Pat Hingle, this hour-long film documents the run-up to the Stock Market Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression that followed. Made in the 1970s, the film carefully lays out major historical events, as with the stunning footage of the German Zeppelin Hindenburg bursting into flames over New Jersey in 1937. Powerful images such as this are both literal and metaphoric documents of the tragedies of the age. By relying on the old newsreels alone to depict the events, the filmmakers immerse us in the period in a way that would not have been possible had they interviewed a team of experts.

If anyone has a non-edited version of this documentary please message me, I think it’s missing at least 5 minutes, this copy is from a TV airing and not from the VHS release, the quality isn’t very good either but it’s the only copy I’ve been able to find, would love to upgrade it with a better looking one. Thank you!
