Great send-up of manager versus labor union relations
A young man (Ian Carmichael) works too fast and causes problems with the labor union in “I’m All Right Jack,” a 1959 British film directed by John Boulting. Boulting actually lost a suit against a labor union. This is his revenge.
Stanley Windrush (Carmichael) is from a wealthy family and, after returning from the war, he wants to be in business. It’s arranged for him to work at his uncle’s firm as a laborer, against the wishes of his aunt (Margaret Rutherford) and work his way up.
Unfortunately, Stanley just doesn’t get it. At first he’s suspected of being an efficiency expert disguised as an employee, something the whole factory fears. Then he inadvertently does his job in front of an efficiency expert. It’s found that he works faster than the other employees. This infuriates the union, who – again – go on strike, which they do every couple of weeks. It takes Stanley a while to figure out what’s going on, but he does, in time for a television talk show.
This film is known today for the brilliant performance of Peter Sellers as the shop steward, whose politics, he says, are private. He’s fabulous. The film also features Terry Thomas, also very funny, and other excellent actors, such as Dennis Price and Richard Attenborough.
Having worked in theater and read up on a recent Broadway strike, Boulting doesn’t miss much. When Windrush asks why a bunch of men playing cards aren’t working, in fact, unions often have quotas of how many people have to be hired, whether they’re needed or not.
Many people, of course, miss the point of unions. If people treated each other like human beings, we wouldn’t have needed unions in the first place. However, “I’m All Right, Jack” understands, as Windrush’s impassioned speech tells us. As long as I’m okay, I don’t care what happens to you. It’s an unfortunate if honest message.
Don’t miss this one.
One of British cinema’s best comedy films about labor unrest !!!!
British film “I’m all right Jack” is about a young member of British aristocracy who decides to have a direct, personal experience of what it means to be a commoner. It is not as easy as he had envisaged it to be. Although he is able to achieve near success, what is more important is to learn that he is able to experience how both management teams and trade unions manage to have their own personal agenda in dealing with workers. Post war years in UK are the setting of this John Boulton film, it was a time when one could hear about Russia as the only foreign nation for Britishers due to its economic system and political ideology. From the perspective of style, this film is divided into two major genres : comedy and drama. Its first quarter can be classified as “pure comedy” wherein a young British aristocrat called Windrush turns out to be an absolute failure in getting a common man’s job which he had always longed to get. Director John Boulting does enormous justice to film’s theme by depicting how factories are in the tight grip of labor unions and management’s team. Television was not considered a threat to cinema when this film was made. It is perhaps for this reason television was chosen as the venue where the young aristocrat would reveal the truth.
