Continuity: About half way through, when the truck drives forward into the ally past the union 'picketers' towards the elevator. After they kill Tulio the truck is inexplicably turned-around (without room in the ally to turn around) and drives forward out of the ally the same way it came in.See more »

Punchy Muckraking Expose, 21 June 2005
Author: Sturgeon54 from United States

I'm in total agreement with the other reviewers here. This is a sharply-made film about a battle at a garment factory over unionization with terrific performances from Lee J. Cobb, a young Robert Loggia, and a menacing Richard Boone as a union buster. Kerwin Mathews gives only a passable lead performance, but then again his novice acting sort of fits his role as an outsider, which was necessary to give the audience a view of the garment industry from an outsider's perspective. Whether or not one scene or another was directed by Sherman or Aldrich makes little difference - the movie fits together fantastically, and has aged quite well. This movie would make a fine contrast to Paul Schrader's excellent 1978 expose movie "Blue Collar", which took an opposing negative view of the union.
