The drama previously blacklisted in the 1950s will make its Blu-ray debut in July. Pre-orders are now live.
In an early announcement to retailers, The Film Detective is preparing 'Salt of the Earth' for Blu-ray on July 14.
'Salt of the Earth' centers on a long, difficult workers' strike against a mining company in New Mexico. Ramon Quintero (Juan Chacon) fights for equity of wages as well as health and safety issues, but at home he mistreats his wife, Esperanza. When the men are forced to end their picketing, Esperanza joins the other women who demand to play a role in the strike, against their husband's wishes. Written, directed, and produced by members of the original blacklisted "Hollywood Ten," 'Salt of the Earth' is a powerful, persuasive drama that educates and inspires.
Specs and supplements have not been detailed yet.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $14.99.
