Breadline: The Great Depression at Home

Part of the People’s Century series, Breadline – The Great Depression at Home documents the serious economic decline faced by the United States of America and felt throughout the world after the boom of the 1920s. Utilizing archival footage and new materials, the film illuminates such events as the stock market crash of 1929, FDR’s New Deal, and the rise of fascism in Europe. This is a fine, informative film for those with an interest in the subject matter, as well as for teachers who may find it useful in a classroom setting. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide. 60 Minutes VHS
