Original Australian Daybill Movie Poster Working Class Man
Working Class Man (released in the rest of the world as Gung Ho) is a 1986 American comedy film directed by Ron Howard and starring Michael Keaton. Both Bill Murray and Eddie Murphy turned down Michael Keaton’s role originally. The story portrayed the takeover of an American car plant by a Japanese corporation (although the Gung Ho title is an Americanised Chinese expression, for "work" and "together"). Toyota's executives in Japan have used Gung Ho as an example of how not to manage Americans. Most of the movie was filmed on location in the Pittsburgh area with additional scenes shot in Tokyo and Argentina.
