TCM's October Spotlight: The Great Depression

This month marks 80 years since the stock market crash of 1929, one of the events which led to the Great Depression. (Seeing stockbrokers on window ledges is much more visually dramatic than watching legislators pass the Smoot-Hawley tariff.) So, every Thursday in prime time this month, TCM is showing Depresion-themed movies.

Tonight's line-up includes two movies that I've recommended previously: Our Daily Bread airs at 10:45 PM ET, and will be followed at 12:15 AM Friday (that's still Thursday evening in more westerly time zones) by Heroes for Sale. (The second link also references Wild Boys of the Road, which will be coming up later in October.)
