70th Anniversary.

Following its world premiere at this year's TCM Classic Film Festival, we're excited to present Flicker Alley's new restoration of Robert Siodmak's rarely seen labor-ific 1951 drama THE WHISTLE AT EATON FALLS. When young union leader Brad Adams (Lloyd Bridges) is reluctantly appointed president of a failing plastics manufacturing plant in a small New Hampshire town, he finds himself with the unenviable task of cutting costs, bringing in new labor-saving machinery and laying off employees, all while simultaneously calming labor relations. Meanwhile, the plant's recently widowed owner Mrs. Doubleday (Dorothy Gish in a rare sound-era performance) is forced to consider selling the company. The stellar supporting cast also includes Ernest Borgnine (in his debut film role), Anne Francis, Arthur O'Connell, Anne Seymour, Carleton Carpenter, Parker Fennelly, Russell Hardie, Doro Merande and James Westerfield.
