What "correct" message?

Are you referring to Connie Field's Life and Times of Rosie the
Riveter? Fields used a combination of government propaganda films
and interviews which she conducted with the women involved in the
industry. Fields doesn't directly interject any narrative or
comment in her film.

Are you, by any chance, mistaking Field's film for the patently
mediocre video entitled Rosie the Riveter (part of the home video
release entitled Homefront U.S.A.) ???
