Silkwood was a nuclear whistleblower and a labor union activist who died in a car collision while investigating alleged wrongdoing at the Kerr-McGee plutonium plant where she worked. In real life, her death gave rise to a 1979 lawsuit, Silkwood v. Kerr-McGee, led by attorney Gerry Spence. The jury rendered its verdict of $10 million in damages to be paid to the Silkwood estate (her children), the largest amount in damages ever awarded for that kind of case at the time. The Silkwood estate eventually settled for $1.3 million.

Film Daily was also positive, calling it a "lusty picture, full of action and comedy", with "fine performances" from Harlow and Tracy.

Screening | Mom...I'm a Slayer: Coming Out in '90s Fantasy Television


Pose. Transparent. Vida. Each of these programs reflects the recent boom in creation of characters and plot lines that work to reflect the endless diversity of an intersectional LGBTQ+ community. Only two decades ago, queer and (even more rarely) trans characters were all but relegated to guest character arcs -- or they were gay, white, upwardly mobile and good for a laugh on Will and Grace. But another, subtler, and  historically pervasive type of queerness existed on American screens if one looked a little closer at the slayers, witches, and Amazonian warriors dominating primetime. This is a screening of Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s “Graduation Day Part II" and an evening of discussion surrounding Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed, Xena: Warrior Princess, and much more as they take critical looks at the coming out metaphors couched in 1990s American fantasy television. Panelists Heather Hogan (Autostraddle) and Kristin Russo (Buffering the Vampire Slayer, Everyone is Gay) will lead a discussion on the ups and downs of changes in portrayals of queer and trans identities today, as well as the centuries-old tradition of literary and cinematic queer subtext and coding.
