Everybody knows this infamous line from the movie ‘On the Waterfront’ – a propaganda movie about corrupt union bosses that Hollywood gladly made. But not too many folks know about ‘Salt of the Earth’ – a movie whose makers were blacklisted and terrorized by the U.S. government, major Hollywood studios, and other criminals. You thought Michael Moore had it bad having to deal with death threats? Nothing taken away from Moore’s efforts, but the makers of this simple movie were terrorized far worse. Click here to watch the video.
