The Dollar­-A-­Day Boys: A Portrait of the Civilian Conservation Corps

SYNOPSIS

“The Dollar‐A‐Day Boys” revisits the Great Depression era through the memories of old men who lived through those “hard times” as enrollees in the Civilian Conservation Corps, the most successful of F.D.R.’s New Deal programs. The film is woven around the personal story of the filmmaker’s father, just one of 3 million enrollees. Despite doing hard work for about 20 cents a day, these last few living alumni recall their CCC experience as “the best thing that ever happened.
