Cinematic recreations and expert commentary reveal the story behind industrial icons Andrew Carnegie and Henry Clay Frick. Carnegie and Frick formed a volatile business partnership that dominated the steel industry in the late 1800s. Their cutthroat business practices and harsh treatment of workers led to the bloody Homestead strike in 1892. After the strike, Carnegie and Frick parted ways and separately rebuilt their legacies through philanthropy.
