Red Hollywood

Film fragments and interviews provide a survey of the filmwork created by the victims of the Hollywood Blacklist. Includes Alfred Levitt, Paul Jarrico, John Berry, Joseph Losey, Dalton Trumbo, Cy Endfield and Abraham Polonsky who were involved as directors and/or writers. An effort has been made to separate the authors' ideology from their contributions to Hollywood cinema. This is not a film about their politics or their martyrdom. In the film, excerpts that follow credits are limited to screenwriters and directors who were Communists, ex-Communists, and occasional sympathizers. Written and directed by Thom Andersen & Noel Burch. 1995. 118 min.
