Salt of the Earth 

When: Mon., Oct. 14, 3 p.m. 2013
Price: Free

Remember the Cold War-era commie scare? (Ah, good times ...) Well, go red (with rage!) by viewing the only blacklisted film in U.S. history: Salt of the Earth, for free at 3 today in Colorado College's Cornerstone Arts Center (825 N. Cascade Ave., According to IMDB, the filmmakers had to develop their film in secret with help from "a sympathetic lab technician." All that's after the cast and crew were chased from filming locations. That's what happens when you document a New Mexico zinc mine strike in the 1950s, lacing your movie with sympathy for Mexican-American workers and feminist undertones. That's also why the Library of Congress added it to the National Film Registry in 1992. — Matthew Schniper
