Overview

The dramatic and eloquent story of America's only blacklisted film. Director Herbert Biberman and his colleagues Michael Wilson and Paul Jarrico struggled for a dozen years to get their film shown in the U.S. Biberman's account of the making of Salt of the Earth and the lengthy battle to get the film seen was first published in 1965. The film is now regarded as an American classic--one of the first films to be added to the National Film Registry. This new edition, with an introduction by James Monaco, will be of interest not only to filmgoers but also to feminists, union organizers, and those interested in Latino issues because of its unique subject matter.
