Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Part of the People's Century series, On the Line -- Mass Production Creates Mass Consumption documents how Henry Ford's innovative production style altered forever the way people approached both work and play. Utilizing archival footage and new materials, the film illuminates such events as the creation of the Model T Ford, the opening of Detroit's River Rouge Plant, and the creation of the UAW. This is a fine, informative film for those with an interest in the subject matter, as well as for teachers who may find it useful in a classroom setting.
