Title: WE HAVE A PLAN
Movie ID: VT4179
Movie Number: 4179
Description: Hollywood glamour, political intrigue and socialism combine in one of the Depression decade's most fascinating campaign sagas. In California, world-famous author and Socialist Upton Sinclair runs for Governor as a Democrat, promising to "end poverty in California." His campaign platform "production for use," not for profit, provides an alternative to capitalism and tests the limits of the New Deal. When Sinclair overwhelmingly wins the Deomocratic primary, the most powerful forces in Califonria join together to ensure his defeat in the November elections, and in the process, invent the modern media compaign. One year later, FDR signs the Social Security Act, a signal that the American system is moving from a relatively unfettered capitalism to the beginnings of a modern welfare state.
