During the Great Depression, Americans sought relief in many ways. Some expressed their depression through literature, photography, and painting works of art. Others escaped from misery of their lives through the magic of motion pictures and radio.
Motion pictures and radio were also important and very popular industries in the 1930's. Even though these were the difficult times for most americans, many thought that 25 cents to see a film was money well spent. Radio was also popular because the entertainment it provided was free and people enjoyed comedy shows, and families also listened to President Roosevelt's fireside chats.
