Summary
Today 25 million people are driving motor cars on the streets and highways of America. To provide this transportation over 5,060,000 skilled workers are occupied. In part 1 of 4, this Prelinger Archives film--a tribute to the master hands of the auto makers--shows the manufacture of Chevrolets from foundry to finished vehicles. Toolmakers crafting patterns and dies are featured, as well as factory workers who fire up the massive foundry machinery to make parts. Called a "classic 'capitalist realist' drama," Master Hands was selected for the 1999 National Film Registry of "artistically, culturally, and socially significant" films.
