Master Hands 1936
A few years after this was filmed, the Chrysler Lynch Rd plant reached a production rate of one car per minute! A fantastic showcase showing Detroit as it starts to hit full modern stride.
Classic capitalist realist drama showing the manufacture of Chevrolets from foundry to finished vehicles.
