Location la: Redstone Theater

Dir. Stanley Donen, George Abbott. 1957, 101 mins. 16mm. With Doris Day, John Raitt, Carol Haney. Can management (John Raitt) and labor (Doris Day) co-exist at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory in Cedar Rapids, Iowa? Perhaps the most scintillating entertainment about unionization ever made, this high-powered musical features typically energetic direction by Stanley Donen, dazzling and instantly recognizable choreography by a young Bob Fosse, songs like “Hernando’s Hideaway” and “Steam Heat,” and Doris Day at her best.
