Synopsis

A dramatic retelling of the 1911 tragedy in which 146 workers died in New York's garment district and ultimately laid the groundwork for the establishment of the ILGWU. The real-life catastrophe took a mere eleven minutes; the movie, with its soap opera plots and assorted inaccuracies (like several key references by some of the ladies to the popularity of Charlie Chaplin who at the time was totally unknown and did not make his first American movie until three years later), took two agonizing hours to unreel. Three technical Emmy Award nominations went to "The Triangle Factory Fire Scandal," which won in the category of Outstanding Achievement in Hairstyling.
