Description

Walter Huston stars as an idealistic bank president who has been making loans to depositors without sufficient collateral. When there's a run on his bank, his loyal staff rallies local small businessmen to make more deposits which moves the directors to keep the bank afloat. Released shortly after FDR's New Deal, this film whole-heartedly espoused Roosevelt's ideals. One of Frank Capra‚Äôs early classics. The film was originally entitled "Bank Story" and was intended to quell American discontent over the alleged misbehavior of banks during the Stock Market Crash of 1929. Both bankers and censors claimed the film did more to improve the image of banks than a thousand newspaper articles.
