Provides some information on the reasons for the stock market crash. It talks about Groucho Marx losing his savings, but never goes back to tell how it changed the rest of his life. I felt there should have been more interviews with regular folks whose lives were affected, rather than descendants of the biggest investors.

really fascinating and it really provides some perspective on the market and the reason for the crash. I do recommend it for viewing.

Really fleshed out this subject for myself and for my teen aged homeschooled son. I wish everyone could see this and really understand how we got there, and how we got here.

Interesting. People being interviewed were a bit quirky. The stock market is still hard to understand. Like to see photos and film of NYC in early 20th century; fascinating for some reason...
