"...who wrote songs and was shot."

Joe Hill came up in the comments section of an article on Olive Films' upcoming Paramount-licensed DVDs at Dave Kehr's site. I remembered I had an ad for this on my hard drive and now I really want to see it. I like the use of red, white, and blue in this poster in light of Mr. Hill's Swedish roots and labor activism (which his critics would use to deem him "un-American") and subsequent execution for a murder that evidence suggests he had no part in.
