The Last Pullman Car (1983)
To watch this film is to live this film.
"The Last Pullman Car" is a classic study in the ongoing battle American workers face each and every day, no matter what occupation they hold. The Pullman-Standard factories (located in Chicago, Illinois and Hammond, Indiana) at one time were thriving industrial plants manufacturing passenger railroad cars for companies like AMTRAK. In fact, the Hammond plant once had a total workforce of 8,000 men and women. But in the late 1970's, this "American Dream" turned into a lasting nightmare that some workers never awoke from. This film does not pull any punches. In fact, this film may be too upsetting to those who witnessed first-hand just how much the American worker (union or otherwise) has lost over the last few decades. I, personally, worked at both plants during the time when Pullman- Standard started closing them. The despair the people have in this film was real. Their uncertain future hits home to many, since closings such as Pullman's have been commonplace for quite awhile now. Whether you work in a factory, mill, office building, or wherever, this unrelenting nightmare might happen to you. And this film surely makes you feel like you are up to your neck in it!
