Master 1 - Tape 2 B/W footage, re-enactment of stock market crash, black thursday, 1929. Men inside a trading pit shout and wave their arms during crazed trading frenzy. Almost fighting with each other. Commerce. Finance. Wall Street. All of them start throwing their arms into a pit at once. Overhead bird's eye shot shows them like a geometric pattern, a la Busby Berkeley. Although billed as 1929 crash, could also be used to show early stock market activities.
