Interview With The Filmmakers
Bill Bailey Stories: Outtakes From The Good Fight
Homage With Pete Seeger
Commemoration Of Those Who Served
Spurred by their government's failure to aid Spanish democracy, 2,800 American volunteers fought with distinction in the Abraham Lincoln Brigade within the international volunteer army. Lincoln veterans (over 750 were killed in Spain) returned home after the Loyalist defeat to encounter suspicion as premature anti-fascists. Branded Communist Sympathizers, blacklisted for years and unable to get work, many paid dearly for their good fight.
Narrated by Studs Terkel, The Good Fight explores a significant gap in our history through its use of newsreels, photographs, interviews with Lincoln veterans and Depression era music. The eleven surviving veterans of the way who appear in this tough, stirring film share a common pride in their sacrifices of seventy years ago when the rise of world fascism crushed the spirit of democracy in a tragic rehearsal for World War II.
