This documentary juxtaposes newsreel footage, film clips and period music in an eye-opening look at the Great Depression.

Through a contrast between the fantasy of film and the reality of everyday life, a fascinating perspective on the Great Depression and Hollywood's golden age is presented. Also includes political speeches by Franklin D. Roosevelt and others
