Synopsis

This Emmy-nominated film follows the troubles stalking John Henry Faulk, a folksy, homespun radio-television personality of the early 1950s whose broadcasting career was abruptly cut off during the blacklisting of the era. Retaining attorney Louis Nizer, he went to court and successfully sued for libel, obtaining a $3,500,000 judgment, although he never again came back to network radio or television. The character portrayed by Lois Nettleton actually was Kim Hunter, the actress and fellow blacklistee, who refused to allow her name to be used in this teleplay, for which David Rintels won an Emmy. William Devane, Lois Nettleton and director Lamont Johnson were also nominated. Geller, the creator and developer of such TV series as "Mission: Impossible" and "Mannix," played the role of his father, the presiding judge at the trial of Faulk vs. Aware, Inc.
