Wallace is an efficiency expert, managing the high-profile downsizing of a major auto parts factory. But when he is hired to evaluate a small moccasin factory which seems from another era, Wallace has to reconsider the rapid modernization he advocates, as he is confronted by the human faces such plans hurt.
It feels initially like a 1950's black and white English film. The acting is a bit like St. Trinian's and the plot about a factory where every one is jolly and not working very hard. Some of the Moccasin slipper references reinforce the archaic atmosphere. The plot is pretty basic: Hopkins is sent in to improve and is a bad guy at first but he becomes a good guy in the end. Why is it not a 2 star? Well it just has a little bit more to it than the old moralistic slap stick 60's stuff. May be just a bit more believable.
