When the last Model T has been loaded into a box car, there is a steam locomotive in the background. It is a Canadian Pacific Hudson which was not even built until some thirty years later and, in any case, would never have been in a Detroit freight yard. See more »

Biopic about the famous manager who revolutionized the industry
11 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

This film is based on true events about Henry Ford's(Cliff Robertson)life.His marriage with Clara(Hope Lange),his tempestuous relationship with his son(R.H.Thomson),lover(Heather Thomas)and helper(Michael Ironside) but specially his hardship way to the success.At the beginning he worked as mechanic but he early designed his own prototypes(Daimler and Benz had invented some of them too).The firm was founded in 1903 at Dearborn and named ¨Ford Motor Company¨ with the model Ford T for the consumer society and the bourgeois family, appearing the XX century cars civilization, achieving a selling of fifteen millions.The working system consisted in a production line by means of an assembly line work which reduced costs and revolutionized the enterprise,being its center the city of Detroit .The employees received a wage of five dollars a day and they bought their own Ford cars. Henry Ford got a big time,however he failed in peaceable campaign about First World War(1914-1918) and he discredit himself in anti-Jewish advertising in the 20s and the confrontation against the trade unions in the 30s. The film is well directed by Allan Eastman,an usual director of television movies .
