Yaphet Kotto Quote of the Month: October 2004

Another early film for Yaphet Kotto was "Blue Collar", which detailed the lives of three assembly line workers at a car plant. In one scene, he tells the character Jerry (Harvey Keitel) the reason why they all come back to work day after day:

Smokey James: Because the finance man's gonna be at your house on Saturday, right? That's exactly what the company wants - to keep you on their line. They'll do anything to keep you on their line. They pit the lifers against the new boys, the old against the young, the black against the white - ANYTHING to keep us in our place.
