Storyboard Text

  • October 29, 1929. The day of the stock market  crash
  • Oh no! Tell me you did not buy shares Walter.
  • The bartender was talking to this pill saying that the stock market crashed this morning. Everyone's shares are dropping
  • Oh no! What happened?
  • Lucille, I was just at our local blind pig and heard something terrible while I was drinking some giggle water.
  • I wish I could say no
  • You must be splifficated because that idea is crazy. We can't force her to work. Lets call them over and talk about this as a family
  • That's baloney! They can not do that to us. What about the kids?
  • The bank said they are taking back all the money they loaned. They are giving us a week to find a job before they take it back
  • We will have to take them out of school, and maybe Elizabeth could start working
  • I know Elizabeth, but instead you might have to start working in order to help out
  • ... so that is why we will have to take you all out of school for a while
  • You are all wet. I probably can't even find a job, so many companies are closing since the crash. At least that is what I heard from a drugstore cowboy
  • But I am only a fish in school.  I can't leave now!
  • Well, we will have to sell all our luxuries, which means our radio, fancy clothes even the telly. Hopefully, this will help so we will not need to sell the house too. 
  • What  about our home?
  • Black Tuesday has been so stressful Walter, what are we going to do. We need to remember to not take any wooden nickels and find a job soon
  • I know dear, we will find jobs and we will be okay. We will sell our stocks for whatever money they are worth and ask around for work. It will be okay.
  • The End
