Brother, Can You Spare a Dime? is a 1975 documentary film directed by Philippe Mora, consisting largely of newsreel footage and contemporary film clips to portray the era of the Great Depression. The film serves as a nostalgic and evocative scrapbook of the Depression from the Wall Street Crash of 1929 to the Attack on Pearl Harbor. It was nominated for the 1976 Golden Globe Award for Best Documentary Film

"Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?" is one of the best-known American songs of the Great Depression. Written by lyricist Yip Harburg and composer Jay Gorney, "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?" was part of the 1932 musical revue Americana; the melody is based on a Russian-Jewish lullaby. The song tells the story of the universal everyman, whose honest work towards achieving the American dream has been foiled by the economic collapse. Unusually for a Broadway song, it was composed largely in a minor key, as befits the subject matter. The song became best known through recordings by Bing Crosby and Rudy Vallee that were released in late 1932. The song received positive reviews and was one of the most popular songs of 1932. As one of the few popular songs during the era to discuss the darker aspects of the collapse, it came to be viewed as an anthem of the Great Depression.
