Recreating the Dust Bowl
TV Family Excerpt 3: Recreating the Dust Bowl from Ethan Thompson on Vimeo.
Fifty years before she appeared in Ken Burns' documentary The Dust Bowl, Pauline Durrett Robertson described what it was like to get caught in a storm for NBC's Story of a Family. In this excerpt from TV Family, we see part of that segment, and PJ Robertson Pierce explains how the NBC crew recreated the dust storm for the 1960 special.
Braniff airlines + conscripted child actors...you can't do this any more!
