"It's A Wonderful Factory!" ***½
16 December 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful, absorbing story of the people of fictional Doubleday Plastics.

You'll be reminded of the Frank Capra school of storytelling with unforgettable performances by a terrific cast; and the taut plotline, prophetic in its day, will be now all too familiar to many who have since seen the problems faced by similar mom-and-pop firms in today's fiercely-competitive corporate marketplace. You'll find every scene absorbing in this underrated Siodmak masterpiece. Seek it out! Highly recommended to all.
