Matewan (1987)

Written and Directed by John Sales


Set against the fierce coal miners strikes of the 1930's this is a classic Sales story of the little guy standing up to the big guy. A young preacher leads the workers and their families into the righteous fight against the evil coal company.

Look for NYPD Blue's Gordon Clapp as a henchman of the evil corporation. In fact, Clapp also appears in Sales' equally wonderful "Eight Men Out".
