The Real Rosie the Riveter

(#1323) from Kentucky Life Program 1323 (2007)

Beckie Voyles talks about the life of her grandmother, Rose Will Monroe, a Somerset native who was “discovered” working in a Michigan airplane factory and became the real-life representation of Rosie the Riveter. Actress Angela Bartley enacts scenes from Monroe’s life, and former aircraft inspectors Melenee Roberts and Norine McKinney recall life in World War II-era factories.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
