Synopsis
The effects of McCarthy era in the movie industry are examined in this documentary. Victims of the House UnAmerican Activities Committee and the blacklisting that ended so many careers are interviewed. But the primary focus of the fim is the "Hollywood Ten" a group of writers and directors who were imprisoned because they refused to answer the committee's questions and name names.
