Al Webster: After the whistle blows, mister. I got no time to talk to the boss outside of hours.
Brad Adams: Oh, Al, let's forget about what happened...
Al Webster: I ain't forgettin' nothin'. In this game, you pick sides early and play on your own team. Anybody who changes is a traitor.

"It's A Wonderful Factory!" ***½
16 December 1999 | by Hup234!See all my reviews

This is a wonderful, absorbing story of the people of fictional Doubleday Plastics.

You'll be reminded of the Frank Capra school of storytelling with unforgettable performances by a terrific cast; and the taut plotline, prophetic in its day, will be now all too familiar to many who have since seen the problems faced by similar mom-and-pop firms in today's fiercely-competitive corporate marketplace. You'll find every scene absorbing in this underrated Siodmak masterpiece. Seek it out! Highly recommended to all.
