How does the oxymoron "abundant poverty" affect the meaning of this sentence?

The glamorous Hollywood movies of the 1930s offered a glimpse of wealth to people beset by abundant poverty.

 

Options:

It points the finger of the blame for the 1930s Depression at the rich upper class

It implies that instead of plentiful possessions, there were widespread lack

It explains that people in the 1930s were poor because they had been spending too freely

It explains that people had enough to meet their needs, even though they were poor

 

Thank you in advance!

My guess is the second choice:

 

" It implies that instead of plentiful possessions, there were widespread lack. "
