The worst economic period in America's history was the career high point of America's most elegant songwriter, Cole Porter. Between the stock market crash in 1929 and Pearl Harbor in 1941, Porter wrote the scores for twelve shows and four films, took an around-the-world cruise, and was permanently injured in a horseback riding accident. This program wends its way through this packed period in Porter's life and notes what was going on at the same time in the outside world.
