FILM BACKGROUND

Guy Green's intense social drama probes the personal dimensions of labour-management and the beginning of a lack of solidarity in trade unions. Acclaimed as one of the most moving and powerful films ever made in Britain, The Angry Silence won unprecedented acclaim. Within a week of its opening it had become the most talked-about film in the country, and even today is still deemed controversial for its cynical depiction of organised labour as a thuggish, mindless collective. Bryan Forbes won the 1961 BAFTA Award for Best British Screenplay. This film brought together Richard Attenborough and Bryan Forbes to create Beaver Films and co-produce their debut feature about a highly controversial subject. They also adopted a new policy of deferred payment for the artists that enabled the film to be produced for the astonishingly low sum of £97,000.

PERSONAL REVIEW

Little known movie these days, but this film is an absolute gem, superb drama, thought provoking subject, excellent acting by all, Oliver Reed has a small part in the film and on a trivia note the actress Pier Angeli once married to Vic Damone had a sporadic career in her search for fame, she died at the age of 39 of a barbiturates overdose

PLOT SYNOPSIS

Young couple, Tom Curtis (Richard Attenborough) and his wife Anna (Pier Angeli) are expecting a child. At Martindale Engineering, Tom’s workplace, a new employee and villainous agitator, Travers (Alfred Burke), in collusion with shop steward Connolly (Bernard Lee) begin complaining about conditions and provoke an unjustified wildcat strike. When voting against the proposed unofficial strike takes place, Tom is both surprised and dismayed when his friend Joe (Michael Craig), who has been urging this course of action, suddenly abstains from voting. Soon, Travers and his methods are attracting a wave of support in the factory and the men come out on strike, but Tom decides to cross the picket line after Connolly indirectly threatens his family. When the men do return to work, Tom discovers he is regarded as a blackleg and has been sent to Coventry by his workmates; leaving him to endure the mental and physical reprisals of his workmates. The newspapers and television quickly get to hear the story, and a journalist (Bryan Forbes) puts Tom’s plight into the national headlines whilst a TV reporter (Alan Whicker) gauges opinion outside the factory. Despite the disintegration of his marriage and a distraught wife who does not understand his stubbornness, Tom stands by his principles until tragedy strikes. Ultimately, Joe is left to deliver a closing denunciation on his friend’s behalf before a works assembly.
