This is a must see by anyone with an interest in the depression and anyone who thinks they can get rich quick in the investments markets.
4 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the best films about how people made out with the events of the stock market crash of 1929. David Ogden Steirs and Richard Crenna give excellent portrayals of Durant and Livermore. The havoc which wrecked many people at the time is depicted very well.

I am a Professor of Finance and money manager and tell my students this is one of the top five movies to watch on the how the financial world works. Unfortunately I have never been able to find it on DVD and it is rarely on TV.

This is a must see by anyone with an interest in the depression and anyone who thinks they can get rich quick in the investments markets.

Any one know where I can get this on DVD?
