Everyone's heard of Slim the Lineman movie right?  Well if you haven't seen it you are in for a thrill...this is one of those eye-opening movies that everyone needs to see, whether you are a lineman or not.  The risks and dangers faced in those early days really make you appreciate the progress unions and power companies have shown when it comes to safety.  You will be on the edge of your seats watching these linemen work through a powerful blizzard -- no just have to see it.  We love our linemen customers (and their families) at TNT Electrical Trades Gift Store and we REALLY want to bring you those special gifts for the special linemen in your life.
SLIM THE LINEMAN - A WARNER BROS. PICTURE.This movie documents how the electrical lineman's job and language have evolved and yet still remains the same in much of the terminology from the 1930s to today. 
Henry Fonda makes his debut in this movie and plays Slim Kincaid, a farm boy from the southern United States. As he is plowing the fields on his family's farm he stops to watch a crew of linemen erecting transmission towers across the property. He finally asks them for a job and is hired as a groundman. His partners on the job are Clarence Stump (aka Stumpy)(Stuart Erwin), another groundman, and Red Blayd (Pat O'Brien), an experienced lineman who takes Slim under his wing. 
Slim wins over the respect of the other linemen when he helps them in a fight during a poker game against some people from out of town who are trying to cheat them out of their money. Slim then advances in the job to become a lineman himself. Foreman Red teaches him all he needs and soon they become friends. When they are fired because they protected their boss in a case when another worker died by falling from a mast because he was drunk, they go to Chicago, where they spend their money and visit Red's girl friend, Cally.
The two then head to New Mexico in search of another job. They are hired, only to find that one of the linemen on the job, Wilcox (Joe Sawyer), is an old acquaintance of Red's and the two harbor a dislike of each other. Wilcox sees Red and Slim as competition to his own desire to be promoted to foreman, and one day stabs Slim on the job. The other linemen chase Wilcox off the job site while Slim recovers in the hospital. The nurse from Chicago (Cally) visits Slim and tries to talk him out of line work, saying it is too dangerous. Slim however recovers and returns to work.
The job in New Mexico finished, Slim and Red then head to a new job in New York City to find that Stumpy and their old boss Pop (J. Farrell MacDonald) are both on the crew there. During a blizzard, the crew is called to a substation to restore power, working near 88,000 volts of power, where Red falls to his death. The nurse makes the trip from Chicago to New York to visit Slim and once again try to talk him out of line work, leaving Slim to face the choice between his job and his girl. Slim carries on with his job because "that's what matters".
