    It's so disturbing to me that in this land of FREEDUMB we are still fighting for rights for women, latinos, unions, and gays. We have Mccarthy era style hearing in congress, union busting in wisconson, indiana and ohio and anti-latino and anti-gay laws in congress. With all the human right protest in the middle east I am apalled that 57 years after the this film, America is regressing backwards. Hats off to fellow Hoosier Will Geer life long activist for union and gay rights.

    77/100. A very real and believably done movie, and it makes a powerful statement in a simple but persuasive way. What is amazing is how excellent the mostly non professional cast is, especially Rosaura Revueltas. She gives a beautiful and sensitive portrayal. Director Herbert J. Biberman does an excellent job developing the characters. Surprisingly the film has a feminist slant, one of the earliest examples of that in cinema. Making the film even more interesting is the group of men that participated in the film, producer Paul Jarrico, actor Will Geer, director Biberman and screenplay writer Michael Wilson were victims of the Blacklist. Very well done and a good of what you can do without much of a budget.
