Scotty goes on Strike !?!
23 April 2010 | by (Chicago, IL, United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this flick, (or, maybe the revised version), in a community college business class in 1969. I and a few other students recognized James Doohan as Scotty, from Star Trek. Anyway, it's an 'educational' film about labor unions and management. It purports to show how they may work together to overcome differences during a labor dispute. It's actually a first class flick without the 'Coronet Films' educational feel to it. Well, written, well directed, well acted. What more could you ask for. It's set in a Canadian town, and concerns the lives of workers in a furniture factory. James Doohan being one of them. There's a labor dispute over wages, and if it's not solved, the workers, including him, may go out on strike. He's rightly concerned for the well being of his family, and, it's just before Christmas. But, just as they're ready to hit the picket lines, the union leaders and management come to an agreement and all is well. The version I saw, had a voice- over in places explaining what was happening on screen. Perhaps that's the revision in the 'revised' version. Without the narration, it would have been a pretty good entry in a half-hour anthology series, such as were popular at that time. Maybe it was.
