Quick Glimpse At Depression Era Domestic Life
27 November 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A VITAPHONE VARIETIES Short Subject.

Living only FIVE MINUTES FROM THE STATION, a lowly clerk takes the Big Boss home for dinner. His determined wife sees this as an opportunity to campaign for her husband's promotion.

Realistic & sensible, this little 3-character drama deals forthrightly with some of the pressures & dreams of an average young married couple in the early months of the Great Depression.

Celebrated actress Sylvia Sidney makes one of her first screen appearances. Lynne Overman plays her husband; and Berton Churchill as the boss presents the sort of character he would portray many times in the next ten years.
