Editorial Reviews

This program is part of the PBS series American Experience. In this episode, the camera turns to that dark day in America when the economic foundations of the country came tumbling down. The stock market crash, which occurred on October 29, 1929, changed the American experience forever. Fortunes were lost and confidence was shaken, ushering in the Great Depression of the 1930s. Scholarly analysis of this complex event are accompanied by archival news clips, photographs, and personal accounts of those who survived this monumental day in American history. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi All Movie Guide
