Hallelujah, I'm a Bum! There are some late 60s-early 70s movies I recall: Paper Moon, Bonnie and Clyde, They Shoot Horses Don't They? (which I also read the book, wow, I recommend it), Thieves Like Us, The Great Waldo Pepper. People like the Depression era in movies because it means adventure, going out on your own, having nothing to lose, stuff like that, like in It Happened One Night. Just yesterday I was thinking about a Depression-era book my brother and I read when we were youngsters called Sanctuary, by William Faulkner. I remember my brother saying sarcastically it made him want to go out and whistle a tune! Depressing as Hell, not for children.
