Coal Strike Ended (film #132 on Universal Newsreels). [Category: News]

40s newsreel reporting the end of a coal strike. Everybody is happy and cheerful, but you just know this is a temporary lull in a long struggle between labor and management. Some striking scenes of miners going underground are included. This is followed by a story about Catholic charities sending food to starving people overseas, including some interesting footage of food packing and shipping. This is one to mine for a video project.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
