World Gone Mad
(Manufactured on Demand)
This timeless story of corporate greed and political scandal could have easily been ripped from yesterday's headlines. A hard-boiled, street-wise newspaper reporter (played by Pat O'Brien) is determined to untangle the questionable activities of a big Wall Street investment firm, leading him into the path of mob bosses and an unsolved murder along the way. A prescient document of unscrupulous banking behavior in the days just before the Great Depression, this film is intriguing-and perfectly primed for modern day remake.
