One of the first feelings I had when watching the film was that
The largest contributor to the problems plaguing the Eastman Kodak Company is its failure to predict, innovate, and establish market share in the imaging industry’s change to the digital sector. The success experienced by Kodak in the last 100 years was a direct result of their ability to adopt disruptive technology with regards to film sales and development to stay one step ahead of its competitors.

President Roosevelt started to bring America out of the Great Depression that it once was in, but he had to handle the challenge the Supreme Court put on him by not passing a few acts from his New Deal.

President Roosevelt put his head together with brainstormers he hired to come up with the Court Packing Plan that he sent to the Supreme Court; hence, this causing an uproar among the nation. Furthermore, the plan ended pershing having President Roosevelt being humiliated and shamed for trying to control the Supreme Court and destroying checks and balances even though he tried to help America when he thought it would die and perish.
