Chronicling various personal stories surrounding the 1929 stock market crash, this adaptation of the best-seller by Gordon Thomas and Max Morgan-Witts had a curious TV history. Originally announced in 1978 as a four-hour movie to be called "The Day America Died", with a stellar cast of TV personalities, it ultimately went into production in mid-1980 in a less ambitious three-hour form and was scheduled to premiere on February 1, 1981, but was withdrawn without notice on the eve of its showing. It subsequently aired one year later.
