Storyline

The story of a fire in the Triangle Shirt Mfg. Co. building in New York City in 1911 that resulted in the deaths of 146 employees, mostly young women. The ensuing investigation revealed the company's almost total disregard for its workers' safety in pursuit of increased production and profits, and resulted, among other things, in the passage of new worker safety laws and the formation of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union.

Great movie
15 March 2002 | by Charlotte Rae FanSee all my reviews

This movie was very good, and very dramatic. We watched it in history! (I was thrilled, cause Charlotte Rae is in it!) Anyway, it was a very well written movie and the cast is VERY talented! It feels like you're really there watching it. It gets a little too realistic when people were jumping out windows to escape burning to death.
