    It’s all about the final effect for movie viewers and this one was well assimilated and edited. It captured the images, feel and backgrounds of many steelmaking communities and blended them together with great, final results.

    I worked in the mill used in the Deer Hunter. It was originally Wheeling Steel. It then became Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel.
