Multi-Media Review: THE GREAT DEPRESSION (video) : AH

8/19/2000 • Reviews

THE GREAT DEPRESSION, a set of four 50-minute videos from the History Channel, $59.95.

The Great Depression details life in America from the Crash of 1929 to the coming of World War II. Extensive photographs and newsreel footage capture the era’s despair, show how people escaped their troubles with diversions like dance marathons, and explore the radical politics that arose seemingly overnight. The videos examine some of the decade’s most influential figures, including Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Pretty Boy Floyd, Upton Sinclair, and Douglas MacArthur.
