Steel manufacturing has been a vital American industry for decades, and here in Steel: The Hardest Metal in the World, viewers are treated to an eye opening look at the history of steel production. In this exacting promotional film detailing hazardous working conditions, first the liquid pig iron is heated to 2600 degrees, and then sent down a chute to be formed (this is what pig iron is used for, mostly). After cooling, the iron hardens into steel ingots. The ingot form is then rolled into elongated sheets by the steel mill workers. This entire process is being watched by inspectors to ensure the quality of the product, though it illustrates unsafe working conditions in the 1900's. Not entirely automated, there are men inside the factory that must manually work machines in these adverse conditions. Afterwards, the steel is cut by a secret metal that is tougher than steel. In fact, it cuts through adamantine steel as if it were cheese, generating a lot of heat in the process. Steel: The Hardest Metal in the World is a prime example of historic cases of unsafe working conditions in American factories.

Meet King Joe is a classic animated capitalist propaganda film from the 1940s. The agenda is convincing discontented workers of the time that American business was the best in the world and because of it, American workers were “king” of all the workers. As evidence of this, the film touts American factory machinery as being so efficient that American workers create the best products at the lowest prices, which allows them to stretch their wage farther in the marketplace. American workers also have the shortest working hours (also due to the wondrous machinery). The main character and narrator of the film, Joe, a worker in overalls, spouts bizarre statistics such as Americans own 92% of the world’s bathtubs and almost every refrigerator ever made, in order to prove the point that American workers can afford a higher standard of living than those in any other country. Joe is shown sitting on top of a machine that spits out cars, televisions, and washing machines with no help from him or any other workers, something that seems vaguely insulting to the very workers for which this film was intended. Overflowing with irony, Meet King Joe is a special relic of a different time in American history.
