Description
Whatever became of the "American Dream"? Richard Pryor, Harvey Keitel and Yaphet Kotto star in the powerful, critically acclaimed drama Blue Collar. Three auto assembly line workers, fed up with union brass and tired of scraping by, hatch a plan to rob a safe at union headquarters. Disappointed with their measly bounty, they realize they've made off with something much more valuable than cash. Their unexpected swipe suddenly envelopes the three autoworkers in a desperate fight against corruption and organized crime. --Container description.
