Description:
A 16mm silent, black and white film that shows members of the Drug Employees Union Local 1199 engaged in various activities. Members are shown attending meetings, working, walking a picket line, signing a petition, attending an art gallery exhibition, and hosting a Christmas party for children.
Consists Of: 16mm Film (a), Original 400 Foot Film Reel (b), Original 400 Foot Film Can (c), and Original Paper Work Order (d).
2012.79.1.14.1a: 16mm film. Film begins with the 1199 logo that reads "We the Members of Local 1199", and shows drug store workers engaged in a variety of work-related activities. The first scene shows pharmacists at work mixing drugs and assisting customers. The next two scenes show members lining up at a meeting to pay dues at a window. The members shown are both black and white men and women. The next scene shows what appears to be a different meeting with a greater number of people in attendance. The meeting ends, and the members get up to leave. The next scene shows a group of around a dozen people, mostly men, seated around a table. The next scene shows a different meeting. There is a large banner above the stage that has a circle, half of it black, and the numbers 40 and 5 are on either side of the line. There is a table on the stage, where people are seated. They appear to be voting on something because many of those in the crowd raise their hand. The footage shows a second banner that reads Defend & Protect Our Gains...Organize the Unorganized Stores. The next scene shows people exiting, perhaps after the meeting is over. A picket line is seen in the next footage and the striking workers wear signs that read This Drug Store is on Strike Please Do Not Patronize. The 1199 union name is listed below. There is also footage of the picket line that shows the front of the drug store, Freistadt's. The next scene shows men looking at a jobs board and then men lining up at a window to talk to a man behind the counter. The next scene shows an office with mostly women seated at desks using typewriters. In a different office, a man talks to one man, while another man is examined by a doctor with a stethoscope. There is some footage of what appears to be the Local 1199 newsletter Drug News. The next scene shows a room with a lot of beds and men lying on them probably for a blood drive. Nurses attend to the men on the beds, while some of the men drink out of cups (they appear to have donated blood). The next scene shows men with thermometers in their mouths. Following that scene, there is footage of people dancing at a square dance. The footage also shows the band providing the music for the dancers. The next scene appears to show two black women and one white woman acting on stage during a play. The next scene shows a man speaking to a large group of people in a room. A different meeting is shown after that, and a man is handed a trophy. The next scene shows the entrance to a Wolf Ubogy art exhibit, and there is footage of the art on the walls and people talking. The next scene shows a large group of children, and many of them are eating ice cream. Some of them are performing on stage. A clown is also shown performing for the children. He balances a small dog in his hand, and there are other dogs on stage. Another clown performs juggling. A man dressed as Santa Claus appears and waves to the children. The scene ends with two children, one black and one white, sitting on the lap of Santa Claus and waving to the camera. The next scene shows a group of men and women signing an oversize telegram to Governor Dewey in Albany, New York. The telegram subject reads Local 1199 demands No Fare or Rent Increase. The footage also shows a close-up of people signing the telegram. The next scene appears to be a montage of the entire film with brief clips from many of the different scenes. There is footage of a banner that reads 21 Years of Local 1199 in the middle of the banner. On the left hand side is 1932 next to a circle with 66 and 6 inside of the circle. On the right hand side is the same design, except the date is 1953 and inside of the circle is 40 and 5. The next scene is another montage, this time with footage of various meetings and people speaking at microphones. A small banner reads Ligget Division Retail Drug Employees Union Local 1199 - DPOWA. The final scene shows a seated audience clapping and the camera pans the crowd. The same logo from the beginning of the film appears again.
2012.79.1.14.1b: Original 400 foot film reel.
2012.79.1.14.1c: Original 400 foot film can. The metal can has a shipping label from Chamba Educational Film Services and blue painter's tape used as labels.
