A Corner in Wheat, 1909

“A greedy tycoon decides, on a whim, to corner the world market in wheat. This doubles the price of bread, forcing the grain's producers into charity lines and further into poverty. Shows the differences between the lives of those who work to grow the wheat and the life of the man who dabbles in its sale for profit.” Written and directed by David Wark Griffith.Courtesy of The Library of Congress
