Moody industry drama has Attenborough (who headed this production company) selected by insidious union organizer Burke to lead the revolt in his factory. In a confused, groping performance, Attenborough attempts to organize fellow workers, bringing about a wildcat strike and misery to

his colaborers for which he is vilified, then beaten up and ostracized while his wife, Angeli, and family suffer. Attenborough's intense performance does not clarify this film's murky motivation. It's hard to tell from the script and direction if Attenborough is trying to indict unions or

capitalism. Nominated by the Academy for Best Story and Screenplay.

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
