I think these films center more on social class than the labor movement.

Hoosiers

here are a few more that came to mind:

Titanic [1997] (sorry.)
Bullets Over Broadway [1994]
The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone [1961]
Where Angels Fear to Tread [1991]
Maurice [1987]
A Passage to India [1984]

..and several of Joan Crawford's films of the '30s and '40s would seem to fit the bill:

Possessed [1931]
Rain [1932]
The Bride Wore Red [1937]
Mannequin [1938]
The Shining Hour [1938]
Mildred Pierce [1945]
Flamingo Road [1949]

SUBJECT: [Videolib] Need your help: yet another MRC videography

Hi group:

Here's a Tuesday morning cine-trivia question for you all: I'm putting
together a videography of movies that involve social class. I already
have a labor movies vid, so what I'm looking for are films in which the
conflict, or relationship between social classes is a predominant plot
point. Here's what I have so far:

Alice Adams
All that Heaven Allows
Ball of Fire
Born Yesterday
Boudu Saved From Drowning
The Breakfast Club
Down and Out in Beverly Hills
My Fair Lady
My Man Godfrey
A Place in the Sun
Pretty in Pink
Pretty Woman
Pygmalion
Ruggles of Red Gap
Rules of the Game
Stella Dallas

What am I missing????

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
