Johnstown Flood

Rumors and fears that the South Fork Dam might burst were widespread for many years, but ignored. On May 31, 1889, townsfolk fears were tragically realized when a 40-foot wall of water raced down the Conemaugh Valley, devouring everything in its path. Academy Award winner Richard Dreyfuss captures the emotions of survivors who watched as Johnstown, Pennsylvania was transformed from a bustling industrial city into a wasteland. 64 min. 2003
