Stagehands at Work, 1960

This has already been making the rounds, but it’s too good not to share. The Prelinger Archives has a short film from the 1960s about theatre stagehands at work. Part of the “Americans at Work” series presented by the AFL-CIO, this ten minute video shows how much things have changed in the past fifty years (and, more interestingly, how much has stayed the same).

  1. Thank you for posting this! My grandfather was a stagehand for many years, and he is actually in this clip. It was great to see him in action 🙂 Thanks again!!
