Gripping story of a West Virginia mining union struggle in the 20’s.  There are some really villainous bastards in this movie.  Excellent film all around.  Now that I have a widescreen TV, it irks me even more to see pan & scan butchered films.  If I thought I’d watch this movie more than once more, I’d track down a copy of the Canadian DVD, which has the proper aspect ratio.   Rating: 8
