There's No Way Like the American Way.

Ah, the irony. Famous photographer Margaret Bourke-White (she was the first Western photographer allowed into the Soviet Union!) took this photo of a bread line during the Louisville Flood in Kentucky in 1937.

Was that background poster used in the Terry Gilliam movie "Brazil"? Without the "American" headline, of course. Either it, or something extremely similar?

After a flood, yes, but not a breadline. They're waiting in line for help -- in the form of food and clothing -- the way people continue to do following a natural disaster. It's like calling people waiting for assistance from the Red Cross a breadline.
