Good movies about the dark days of the Un-American Activities Committee chaired by Joe McCarthy. What a bunch of jerks.

It has been so long since I have seen this movie that I don't remember too much about it except that i believe that I enjoyed it. I just arbitrarily clicked the middle star because I was told I must do so before I could write a review.

So now that I am here at the second plateaus, while I doubt that Barrie Bracken of Daytona Beach will return to this review, if he does or if anyone else reading his review has a similar outlook as to the witch hunts, particularly involving the Hollywood community, I strongly encourage you to watch "One of the Hollywood Ten", the story of director Herbert Bilberman, who along with his wife Gale Sondergaard were black-listed.

I can't remember who took her role but I know that Jeff Goldblum played Bilberman and much of the story revolves around them attempting to film "Salt of the Earth" where they used actual striking mine workers rather than actors. I think Will Geer played himself in it as he was one of the stars of "Salt of the Earth".

Great movie--amazing it was made

"I've reviewed the other reviews of this movie and they are basically what I would expect. I think many of the negative reviews are from people unacquainted with the era of McCarthy and his cohorts. I had to live through it. My family and I were affected by the Unamerican Subcommittee procedings and their effects. The ridiculousness lasted past the 50's. As a senior in college I was threatened by an FBI plant who was passing as a dumb college senior. He blew his cover and failed to show up at graduation. When he approached me I refused to believe good old J. Edgar wpoui;s be stupid enough to employ anyone as stupid as this kid. How could anyone who had first hand contact with the minions of that great institution have dfoubted the idiocy of Hoover? This kid proved me wrong, when I questioned the legitimacy of his badge he pulled an automatic pistol from his pocket and removed the clip, then handed tit to me saying, "They don't give this to fakes." I have never liked being threatened. When another FBI genius showed up at my dorm to question me about my cousin, I complained to him. The junior g-man was pulled from school and sent back to the Washington funny farm I assume.
My complaint about this film is it plays up the problems the ineffective right wing idiots like McCarthy did to other lesser humans who had nothing to do with Hollywood. My father had a sensitive job as an elementary scvhool teacher in a backwater town in Florida. The FBI came to his school to question him. When he informed them he did not know anything, the brilliant G-man told him if he wanted to keep his hight profile job pushing a broom, he would cooperate like any good citizxen would or never work anywhere again. Dad knew the power of the idiots and made some vague remarks of some intelligence. He told the FBI he knew communists by name only and named the leading politicians of the defunct American Communist Party.
There are great Americans running aound this country still who realize they can influence a great many people through fear and loud talking. They have changed their names from the John
Birch Society to Fox News, but they are just as dangerous. If you want to see at least some of the harm done by blowhard politicians see this movie. It doesn't tell the whole story, but if you didn't live through this time, you owe it to yourself to see it."
A sober history lesson

"Before you know it our rights can be taken away. Don't believe it? It happened this movie to find out how easily it happened."
