C.C. Wain saves his depositors’ money in the banking failures of the Great Depression. A depression-era Robin Hood, he “borrows” the money, is apprehended by chance, suffers prosecution for a crime he didn’t actually commit and is mysteriously released from prison three months before FDR signs into law the very act for which he had been jailed. Today, we need simple men to stand up for the promise they gave to people who trusted them.
