WAR IS A RACKET



~ THE PLOT TO OVERTHROW FDR ~ In 1932, while many Americans felt it was the way out of the Depression, a powerful group of financiers and industrialists saw the New Deal as a threat. THE PLOT TO OVERTHROW FDR reveals this group's plan either to overthrow the newly-elected president or force their agenda on him. They intended to use a paramilitary organization of disgruntled WWI veterans inspired by Marine General Smedley D. Butler to coerce the government. But Butler, discovering the details of the conspiracy, blew the whistle, triggering a Congressional investigation. Leading scholars, historians and government officials reveal the details of one of the most bizarre schemes in American history. B&W/Color, 50 minutes. Available from International Historic Films.
