Children's Stories from Around the World
SALT OF THE EARTH (Special Edition DVD)
A controversial drama about the struggles of striking mine workers in a small New Mexico town whose views are socialistic and surprisingly feminist. Many of the actors and the film's director were blacklisted after its release.
This is the only authorized edition of America's only blacklisted film. A digitally enhanced transfer provides excellent black-and-white quality. Includes the short documentary on "The Hollywood Ten," hundreds of production photographs, the history and hundreds of pictures of the Empire Zinc strike on which the film was based, Congressional testimony by blacklisted filmmakers, a history of the blacklist in Hollywood, and the theatrical trailer.
