Salt of the Earth (1954) Blu-ray Review

“While Salt of the Earth is soured by stubborn, botched performances, the power of the images is enough to alleviate the stilted line delivery. Frenzied editing as picket lines are breached by police without cause, women striking back; the bonding people do when faced with these circumstances remains inspiring despite a 60 year gap in cinematic context. It’s obvious why – political spectrums remain enamored with debates over income gaps. Workers who demand fair treatment and livable wages are labeled lazy, even greedy. Salt of the Earth remains a viable anthem for their cause.”
