Great Depression-era double bill for TCM

Recommended Posts

I loathe depression-era movies, or war movies, or anything grim; I go to the movies to see satin headboards and slick dance floors and guys in tuxes and women in gowns, and romance and color and glorious landscapes, and horses and butlers and castles and towers.


But I loved Hard Times. Don't ask me why. I just did.

My classic Depression double dip would be I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang and Wild Boys Of The Road, with Heroes For Sale as a bonus. Three movies that don't pull punches, enhanced by first rate casts. Interesting how the 1932 Fugitive ends on a note of sheer horror and desperation, while the last two, which came out in 1933 after Hoover was replaced by FDR, end on an optimistic note with promises of changes for the better.
