Based on real-life events, Black Fury brings viewers deep into Depression hard times...and into the heart of Joe Radek, a simple, hardworking coal miner used and thrown away by racketeers eager to muscle in on the unions. Paul Muni, who personified 1930s anguish as the doomed hero of I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang, makes Joe an unforgettable character: likeable, headstrong, too easily led and finally a towering force for justice as he takes on company goons single-handed.

Movie Summary

Based on an actual strike against the Empire Zinc Mine in New Mexico, the film deals with the prejudice against the Mexican-American workers, who struck to attain wage parity with Anglo workers in other mines and to be treated with dignity by the bosses. The film is an early treatment of feminism, because the wives of the miners play a pivotal role in the strike, against their husbands wishes.
