Summary
When Henry Ford's Model T rolls onto the scene in 1908, it is inconceivable that it will ever be anything more than a plaything for the wealthy. But mass production, and later, Ford's moving assembly line, allowed manufacturers to produce goods at affordable prices that made them accessible to a new mass market. This film follows the acceleration of mass production, from the days of master craftsmen to the pressures and benefits of assembly-line work to the growing strength of "people power" as labor and management struggle to divide the fruits of increased productivity
