    Brother, Can You Spare a Dime is a Great movie, March 22, 2004
    By A Customer

    My name is Amanda and I’m in a 10th grade world history class. We are currently studying the Great Depression and WWII and we have just finished watching Brother, Can You Spare a Dime. This movie helped me to understand not only the culture and life of this era but also helped me to understand the things that led up to the Depression and Stock market crash as well as Pearl Harbor and WWII. I’d recommend this movie to anyone who wants an entertaining way to learn a bit about history.

    Something Everyone Should Watch!, August 1, 2002

    Shows the real down in the trenches struggle of America during the depression. In our times of prosperity and wealth, we sometimes forget it wasn’t so long ago that money was almost impossible to come by, soup lines were many peoples only source of survival and life without all the gadgets and other pleasures we take for granted is very tough.

    Hindered by lack of commentary, May 19, 2003

    Although this documentary brings together a lot of interesting footage, lack of a commentary means that a viewer without a close knowledge of the period in question will find themselves wondering, “Who were those people, and why was what they were doing of historical significance?” On the other hand, if you are very familiar with the politics and culture of the US in the 1930s, this may provide some useful illustrative imagery. I suspect that, these days, more people will fall into the first category.
