Blacklisted

After watching the Oscars tonight, I was somehow reminded of the Hollywood 10. Much has been written about these blacklisted writers. There’s even been films about them (most recently, 2007’s Trombo). 

As I went through some net searches, I came across this 1950 film depicting the situation and main players. It’s a fantastic record of this event, as well as a time capsule with a closer eye to the scene.
