  • El Biffo's rating of the film The Passaic Textile Strike

    Not only is it a great film, it is a crucial piece of U.S. Labor Movement history. The first communist-led strike in America, it lasted over a year and the starving workers triumphed. Long thought lost, reel 5 was recently found/restored and it is marvelous; it shows the children of the strikers.
