Abstract:

Isham's historical melodrama Black Friday centers on the relationship between the heroic railroad baron Richard Strong and his weak-willed wife, Elinor Rossiter. Financiers Jay Gould's and James Fisk's infamous 'corner in gold' on the New York Stock Exchange in 1869, which culminated in a financial panic on Wall Street and a gold price manipulation scandal that tarnished the presidency of Ulysses S. Grant, serves as the backdrop, as Strong's wife is seduced by Datlon, one of Fisk's accomplices. Strong seeks to defend the financial system, just as he seeks to restore his marriage.
