Master Hands is a very interesting look at car manufacturing in the '30s
Just watched this documentary short for Chevrolet, produced by The Jam Handy Organization on the DVD collection called "Saved from the Flames". With little narration or text, we see the auto workers as they go about their business of making cars from beginning to end as accompanied by a symphonic composition written by one Samuel Benavie and performed by the Detroit Philharmonic Orchestra. Nice cinematography by Gordon Avil and perfect editing by Vincent Herman. The whole thing combines to make a pretty entertaining look at how cars got their look during the '30s. It's no wonder the National Film Preservation Board here in the United States gave it the National Film Registry in 1999. So on that note, I recommend Master Hands to anyone interested in this kind of thing.
