Storyline

Johnstown Flood tells a true story of heartbreak, heroism and the courage to survive. On a stormy day in May of 1889, the South Fork Dam explodes, unleashing a 40-foot wall of water. Fiercely thrashing at frightening speeds, the flood devastates the 14-mile valley between the Conemaugh Lake and Johnstown, Pennsylvania under the force of a 20-million-ton tidal wave. Johnstown Flood depicts this tragic event which claims more than 2,200 lives and wipes out 99 entire families and is still considered to be one of the worst disasters in American history. Horrified survivors watch as the bustling industrial city of Johnstown is instantly reduced into a wasteland. The deadly torrent overcomes terror-stricken townspeople who are tragically lost in the flood. As the waters recede, people from all over the world rally around the survivors to help victims regain all that is lost. Features Include: Historian's commentary by Richard Burkert, Executive Director, Johnstown Area Heritage Association,... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Pioneer screen actress Florence Lawrence is said to have an uncredited bit part in this film. The only visible role of any consequence in which she might be identified is that of a customer in Mandel's Emporium who is trying on a corset, but whether or not this is her cannot be confirmed.

The 25 Year Old Clark Gable
5 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is the last of Gable silent films. He split up with his wife and mentor, Josephine Dillon, because the extra work had dried up. It appeared as though Hollywood had no room for him. He went back to the theatre for five years and returned to Los Angeles to try out for his next film in 1931.
