Power and the Land1940

  • 3.6
This historically important documentary, narrated by Walter Cronkite, tells the story of the Parkinson family, farmers in rural Ohio who electrified their farm with the help of a Rural Electrification Administration loan. Before the electrification of their farm, work was done in old-fashioned, manual-labor intensive ways. Water was carried by hand from the outdoor pump, while carts and plows were driven by horses.

Excellent entry into the New Deal documentary genre.
