Barbara Pepper in Films of the Great Depression

Our Daily Bread & Other Films of the Great Depression

1940 NR

Depression-era films of the 1930s mirrored the new social consciousness that was helping to pull the United States out of economic ruin and despair. This collection of rarely seen short films and full-length features includes California Election News #1, The Plow that Broke the Plains, The River and the agrarian drama Our Daily Bread, financed partially by director King Vidor -- and support from a sympathetic Charlie Chaplin.
