Under the Boardwalk: The MONOPOLY Story

.

A classic board game that has been played by over a billion people in the last 85 years, MONOPOLY® is a worldwide cultural phenomenon. “Under the Boardwalk” captures fascinating stories about the game and those who play it. Few people realize the game began as an anti-capitalist political platform thirty years before it evolved into a game about getting rich which took the world by storm during the Great Depression. This documentary looks at how the game was transformed and why it has become so popular. The film also features championships from all over the world, starting with the first World Championship in 1973 and leading up to the exciting coronation of a new champion in Las Vegas.
