It’s the Fourth!!

This clip is from the 1938 Frank Capra comedy You Can’t Take It With You. One of gg’s favorites. It is about the greed of banks, political complacency, and the individual vs. expanding government and Wall Street. Sound familiar?

Although, groovygirl has a classic education that has served her well, there is a lot to be learned for today’s world from watching all films made in the 1930’s. Because the people that went through that trying time in this country are gone and unfortunately, we have failed to pass on the lessons they learned to the fourth generation.

Side musing: this film also has a scene about solar energy! And, of course, the classic “income tax” scene.
