The Good Fight

United States, 1984

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

An excellent political documentary about more than three thousand Americans who joined the Abraham Lincoln Brigade to fight in the Spanish Civil War from 1936-1939, although their participation was frowned upon in many quarters in America at the time. Newsreel clips, anecdotes from veterans, and a Hollywood film, “Blockade”, are deftly edited together to produce this valuable ennobling history lesson. Rated: G
