This work identifies 436 American silent films released between
1909 and 1929 that engaged the issues of militant labor and
revolutionary radicalism. It begins with an extended introduction
and analytical chapters that investigate the ways in which the
American motion picture industry portrayed the interrelationships
between labor radicals, exploitative capitalists, socialist
idealists and Bolsheviks during this critical twenty-year period.
Each entry contains a detailed plot synopsis, citations to
primary sources, coding indicating the presence or absence of 14
predominant discernible biases (including anti- and pro-capitalism,
socialism, revolution and labor), and subject coding keyed to 64
related terms and concepts (including agitators, Bolshevism, bombs,
female radicals, militias, mobs, political refugees, and strikes).
These statistical data included in the filmography are presented in
a series of charts and are fully integrated into the
historical-critical text. Total number and percentage statistics
for the instances of these coded biases and traits are given per
year, per era, and overall.
