The Foreigners are coming to America!! I hope they are making the right choice
I just watched the movie "My Man And I" from 1952 the movie cast includes "Shelley Winters", "Ricardo Montalban" , "Wendell Corey" "Claire Trevor", "Robert Burton (I)" "José Torvay"," Jack Elam" The movie was very interesting it is a good example how foreigners view America. What America has to offer and how good they think America is. However, as time passes by the foreigners realizes how the land of opportunity changes from what they thought it was all about. The foreigners that worked hard for white americans would not pay them the money they deserved to be paid. The americans treated the foreigners badly and didn't care about their well being. The bottom line is the Americans will cheat there way out of any situation to pay any foreigners money. I give the 1952 movie around a 6 out of a possible 10.
