Trading Places (1983)
Sixteen years after the birth of our nation, in May 1792, a group of stockbrokers met beneath a buttonwood tree on what’s now Wall Street in New York City and founded the financial roller coaster known as the New York Stock Exchange.
Commemorating the 225th anniversary of the signing of the Buttonwood Agreement, the Library screens four films this month that capture the cheers, tears, and inherent fears of high finance.
