Kathy M. Newman on “Paradise Lost: The Spectacular Failure of The Whistle at Eaton Falls.”Newman is an English professor at Carnegie Mellon who writes regularly on class and culture and who’s currently at work on a book entitled “Backstory: Film, Television, and Social Class in the 1950s,” which includes an entire chapter on the rarely-seen – and recently restored – 1951 film The Whistle at Eaton Falls, which – along with all the 2021 films -- is still available in the AFI Silver’s DC Labor FilmFest Virtual Screening Room.
PLUS: Viewer reaction to Miss Marx, the film about Karl Marx’s youngest daughter.
