It was the darkest time in Hollywood history...

As America recovered from World War II, the Cold War and the panic of communism began to grip the country. There was a fear that communist had infiltrated Hollywood and were filling the head’s of the American public with secret pro-communism propaganda in their films, TV shows and books. The FBI and Congress’ House Un-American Activities Committee threatened celebs who were suspected of being communists to admit their leanings and to name names of other communists they knew. Those who didn’t comply were put on a Blacklist and their careers were severely damaged by this witch hunt.
