Cradle Will Rock
All together now... For he's a jolly good fellow..
A look at the staging of the (in)famous play ''The Cradle Will Rock'' back in the 1930s. America was going through one of their anti-communism purges, this time with the emphasis on keeping the reds out of the theatre. They were also still recovering from the Great Depression, and so most theatre was state-funded. The film explores the problems with the play, which had a distinctly left-wing theme, and the ground-breaking premiere, which was in a hired theatre with no props or costumes. Other aspects of life at the time are brought out in the subplots.|
