Storyboard Text

  • NEW YORK CITY, MAY OF 1926.
  • These past few years have been amazing! And the wine and beer from this speakeasy is to die for, Honey! No wonder they call they call these years "Roarin'!"
  • I hope this never ends!
  • Yes, of course! I simply cannot wait to drive home in my new Model T! Well, have my servant drive for me! Ha, ha!
  • And I can't wait to listen to my show on the radio tonight!
  • 3 YEARS LATER
  • Alas, all good things must come to an end. There were many causes to this end, otherwise known as the start of the Great Depression. The stock market crashed in 1929 due to shaky-banking, speculation, and buying stocks on margin. Overproduction also played a factor in the cause of the depression. All of this put many Americans into a struggle.
  • WALL ST.
  • 1931
  •  We can't even afford to go to the bar anymore, honey! If we can't even buy beer, how do we expect to pay rent or bills? Feed the kids? This is horrible! We even spent all of our savings. Do you have any ideas?
  • Well... I sort of got laid off last week. They said they couldn't afford to pay me anymore. I'm sorry!
  • It would take a man of great courage to help lead this nation out of this Depression. And that man was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. With his New Deal, he did not end the Depression, but helped guide the nation out of it. The Great Depression ended in 1939, just in time for the United States to prepare to join in fighting in WW2.
  • When will this end? Who will help us?
