Landslide: A Portrait of President Herbert Hoover
This documentary profiles the 31st president (1874-1964), an Iowa native who had the misfortune to be in White House when the stock market crashed in 1929, and presided over the Great Depression's early years before losing his reelection bid to FDR in 1932. An engineer by profession, Hoover directed WWI-era humanitarian aid to Europe, and served as Secretary of Commerce under Harding and Coolidge. Interviewees include historian David Kennedy (+Freedom From Fear: The American People in Depression and War).
