Salt of the Earth is a good, highly dramatic and emotion-charged piece of work that tells its story straight. It is, however, a propaganda picture which belongs in union halls rather than theatres. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- Unavoidable classic on a 1950 mine strike, made by McCarthy era blacklisted filmmakers.
