This was fun to watch, but I should have paid more attention to the title: “1933 Pro-Inflation Propaganda Film.” Up until almost the end I thought it was making fun of the “Inflation is Wonderful” idea. But it wasn’t. Maybe Obama could use it as part of his sales campaign.

I enjoyed some of the pronunciations, such as the way Nineteen Thirty-Three is pronounced — especially the first syllable of “thirty”. I wonder if that’s a pronunciation that’s still heard anywhere.
