Trivia

The painting technique depicted in this film is inaccurate. The approach the painters used in dial factories was "lip, dip, paint." The technique depicted shows the workers licking the paintbrush after having dipped their paintbrush. This technique would be ineffective, since the paint is essentially being licked off before the application. See more »

Goofs

At a little after 1 hour into the film there is a 50 star USA flag fluttering in the wind. In the 1920s there would have been only 48 stars on the US flag. See more »

A piece of history unknown to me
9 January 2021 | by jamactechnicalSee all my reviews

A interesting story I have never heard about in this historical drama based on a true story on the greedy giant corporations of the early 20th century that had lied and failed to protect its workers. After watching this film, I was curious to know more about the details of this period event through searching online...very disturbing facts but bravo to all the women that came forward to fight against what was taken from them and to warn others of these horrors. All the actors did well in their performance especially the two main actors who played the sisters. It's a watchable film if you like historical dramas based on a true story. Give it a go...you will learn something new from it. It's a 6 stars from me.
