The Only American Film Blacklisted In U. S. History! The Story Of The 1951 Empire Zinc Mine Strike Brought To Film By Members Of The Blacklisted “Hollywood Ten” In All Regions DVD Format!


A film that makes the short list as one of the best films ever made by a number of accounts was ironically blacklisted in the United States of America. When members of "The Hollywood Ten", high profile Hollywood movie industry professionals who were blacklisted from working in film after refusing to testify against colleagues before the House Un-American Activities Commission, tried to continue in their profession, they found it necessary to adopt unconventional means and methods to do so. A number of them banded together and embarked immediately upon making this film, a historical drama based on the 1951 Empire Zinc Mine in New Mexico by Mexican-American workers who wanted the same rights and pay as white workers. To do this, the filmmakers relied upon funding by the International Union Of Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers, and unlike most other blacklist-employed films, real rather than assumed names were used. (1953, Black and White, 1:34).
