Summary
"Exposes [what the author sees as] the ugly truth about the Communists blacklisted from the film industry. Too often, the 'Hollywood Ten' brought before the House Un-American Activities Committee are memorialized as victims of an unjust witch-hunt and heroes who stood up for free speech. [He claims that] the truth is shocking: not only did these supposed liberal paragons adore Josef Stalin and take their orders directly from the Communist Party, but they also sympathized with Adolf Hitler"--Amazon.com
