This documentary juxtaposes newsreel footage, film clips and period music in an eye-opening look at the Great Depression. Many of the movies created in the 1930s featured strong social commentary, while others offered pure escapism and fed a fascination with a dazzling world out of reach to the everyday American. Through a contrast between the fantasy of film and the reality of everyday life, a fascinating perspective on the Great Depression and Hollywood's golden age is presented. Also includes political speeches by Franklin D. Roosevelt and others

Während Europa an der Schwelle zum Zweiten Weltkrieg steht, studiert das Teatr Polski in Warschau eine Satire mit dem Titel "Gestapo" ein. Zur Uraufführung kommt es nicht mehr, die politische Situation ist zu angespannt. Joseph und Maria Tura sehen sich gezwungen, den Spielplan zu ändern. "Hamlet" wird gegeben. Während Joseph Abend für Abend auf der Bühne steht, nutzt Maria die zeit für ein Treffen mit dem gutaussehenden Fliegerleutnant Sobinsky. Die Anfangsworte aus Hamlets Monolog dienen als geheimes Signal: Die Luft ist rein. Nach der Besetzung durch die deut- schen Truppen muß das Theater schließen. Im Widerstand bleibt das Ensemble zusammen - und startet seine schwierigste Aufführung: Einem Nazi-Spion ist die Namensliste aller Widerstandskämpfer in die Hände gefallen. Sie darf nicht nach Deutschland gelangen, der Spion muß in eine Falle gelockt werden. Dazu wird das Theater zum Nazi-Hauptquartier ... Der im Januar 1935 nachträglich aus Deutschland "ausgebürgerte" Regisseur verband in "Sein oder Nichtsein" Ernstes und Komisches auf eine unnachahmliche Weise. Er zeigte das Lächerliche an den Nazis, jene Dummheit, jenen Wahnsinn und jene Eitelkeit, die auch Teile des Systems waren, ohne es ganz zu erfüllen, und er nahm dabei dem Faschismus nicht seinen Schrecken. Er zeigt nicht den Widerstand großer Helden, sondern der kleinen Leute, die große Angst haben und obendrein noch eine Menge persönlicher Probleme, die immer wieder ihre Taten durchkreuzen
