February 17 – Salt of the Earth

Salt of the Earth was produced, written and directed by victims of the “UnAmerican Activities” blacklist, who were unable to make films in Hollywood. The movie was blacklisted in the 1950s during the height of the Cold War, the only film in American film history ever to be blacklisted.

Members of the International Union of Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers, Local 890, who were part of the original strike upon which the story is based, appear in this film either as extras or supporting cast.
