There's an old black and white I saw as a child . It is called The Visit.
The plot is unusual : An old rich woman visits a small european town called " Gullen ", a depressed town with a closed mine, factory etc. The townspeople hope she'll invest in the town . She starts by setting up a credit plan that puts everyone in debt . At the end, the mayor asks her to buy the mine and factory, which were profitable before the town went downhill . She asks, " How can I buy the town ? I already own it .
It turns out she was a young girl who was run out of town for getting pregnant by a prominant man and she bought up and impoverished the town for revenge. Getting everyone in debt on her credit plan was the final bit of revenge .
I think small town " Gullen " was like the United States today : Industries shut down... most of all, gullible .
And the Democrats are bent on taking us down for our percieved injustices !
