For your educational and entertainment pleasure on this Saturday morning…

Originally produced in the mid-1990s, this film remains the most authoritative account of the Crash of 1929, and includes rare testimony from the people who worked on Wall Street at the time.

  1. Good film,enjoyed it.Never could buy on that much margin.Poor Groucho.

  2. Thank you for sharing this.
    As a “piker” option trader, I’m all cash, no margin.

    They need to bring back the no-doc, just be breathing, mortgage loan. That would get things pumped up and. (mostly kidding)

    I overheard a commuter on the train taking about putting in a bid on another house, it was a HUD property at 110 K. Around here that would be in a very low end neighborhood. Might turn out fine, but realistically what is the trend of the neighborhood, and in slightly worse times that will be a 75 K house.

  3. meant to say
    …pumped up and get people going.

  4. Like the headline “13 million share session”. Now that’s just an HFT gone wild on CVX within a nanosecond on a Friday afternoon….

  5. When’s the next one? I can’t help but to think we just dodged a bullet in the recent past.

  6. Belly of the Beast

    Thanks so much for posting that !

    Made the wife watch it too !
