On May 30, 1889 the South Fork Dam, which maintained a pleasure lake for wealthy Pittsburgh industrialists and their families, failed due to very heavy rains and poor maintenance by the dam's owners. The burst dam sent a wall of water and debris, 40 feet high and half a mile wide, 14 miles downstream to the bustling industrial city of Johnstown, Pennsylvania. More than 2000 people lost their lives in the disaster. This documentary tells the story, and tells us that the disaster was easily avoidable.
The Johnstown Flood is a 1989 American short documentary film directed by Charles Guggenheim about the Johnstown Flood. David McCullough, author of the 1968 book, The Johnstown Flood, hosted the film. The film won the Oscar at the 62nd Academy Awards for Documentary Short Subject.
