Master Hands (1936) Chevrolet Manufacturing
Classic "capitalist realist" drama showing the manufacture of Chevrolets
from foundry to finished vehicles. Though ostensibly a tribute to the
"master hands" of the assembly line workers, it seems more of a paean to
the designers of this impressive mass production system. Filmed in Flint,
Michigan, just months before the United Auto Workers won union recognition
with their famous sitdown strikes.
Selected for the 1999 National Film Registry of "artistically, culturally,
and socially significant" films.
