22,511.  1933: This is a re-creation of an era: an era of jazz, jalopies, prohibition, and trigger-happy punks.  (GBH Films & Film Noir & 1930s)  Baby Face Nelson 1957 starring Mickey Rooney & Carolyn Jones & Cedric Hardwicke & Leo Gordon & John Hoyt & Jack Elam & Anthony Caruso & Ted de Corsia et al, director Don Siegel

 

 

5,859.  All knowledge is limited.  It’s an irony of history that at the very time this was being worked out, there should arise under Hitler and Germany and giants elsewhere a counter-conception, a principle of monstrous certainty.  When the future looks back on the 1930s, it will think of them as a crucial confrontation of culture as I have been expounding it – the Ascent of Man.  Against the throwback of despotic belief to the notion that they have absolute certainty.  (Evolution & Knowledge & Certainty & Nazi & Humanity & 1930s)  Jacob Bronowski, The Ascent of Man: Knowledge or Certainty ***** 11/13

 

 

120,753.  In the 1930s one was aware of two great evils – mass unemployment and the threat of war.  James Meade

 

 

120,754.  When my father was able to buy a secondhand car in the late 1930s and he took us to the countryside for the weekend, if we looked for a motel to say in we had to see if it said Restricted on it.  Restricted meant no Jews.  (1930s & Racism)  Noam Chomsky  

 

 

120,760.  Whatever the reasons may be, I was very much affected by events of the 1930s – the Spanish Civil War, for example, though I was barely literate.    Noam Chomsky

 

 

120,755.  When I was in Philadelphia during the Depression in 1930 or ’31 I got a very sad job as a night watchman in a garage.  The cars in the garage had been abandoned by their owners, since they had lost their jobs and couldn’t keep up the payments.  Tom Glazer

 

 

120,756.  My parents were children during the Great Depression of the 1930s, and it scarred them.  Especially my father, who saw destitution in his Brooklyn, New York neighborhood; adults standing in so called ‘bread lines’, children begging in the streets.  Bill O’Reilly

 

 

120,761.  I feel like a survivor from an age that people no longer understand.  I want to try to explain what the 1930s – the golden age of Hollywood – was truly like.   People forget that America was such a different place then, not yet the dominant force in the world.  (1930s & Hollywood)  Olivia de Havilland

 

 

120,762.  Hollywood in the 1930s is an incredible period of history.  There are so many amazing stories about the stars and the studios at that time that you can’t fit into one film.  (1930s & Hollywood)  Lily Collins

 

 

120,763.  The key lesson of the 1930s is that appeasement leads directly to war.  Mark Kirk

 

 

120,764.  It’s important to remember that, in the 1930s, a lot of people in the West looked at communism as a pretty good idea.  That was partly because they didn’t know how bad things were on the communist side of the world, but it was also partly because things were bad in the West.  (1930s & Communism)  Chrystia Freeland

 

 

120,765.  When it comes to making laws that protect the public from the financial services industry, Congress has done a progressively worse job since the Pecora Commission hearings of the early 1930s, which led to Congress taking bold steps to regulate banking and securities firms in 1933 and 1934.  Gary Weiss
