In the 1930s and 1940s, Hollywood labour unions were controlled by an alliance between the studio bosses and gangsterism. This text presents the testimony of Gene Mailes, one of a small group of employees who attempted to force through democratic reforms. Nielsen provides a commentary designed to fill in background details and place the story of Mailes's struggle within the wider context of unionism within the American film industry during the Depression and World War II.
