Summary The story of the battle to form the Screen Writers Guild is here told fully for the first time, based on diaries, letters, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, and hundreds of interviews with Hollywood people. It is told through the voices of the writers, directors, and producers who were there--some of whom were blacklisted, some of whom helped to blacklist, some of whom were never before willing to tell their stories. The political turmoil shattered the Hollywood community through the 1930s and into the 40s, leading to the advent of HUAC and, ultimately, to the blacklist. Throughout, Schwartz makes clear how the larger reverberations of worldwide tumults and shifting balances affected the struggle: the rise of Hitler, the Spanish Civil War, the victory of World War II that brought the Right and Left together in celebration--and the dawn of the Cold War, in which that brief moment of solidarity exploded and the Left-leaning idealism of only a few years before boomeranged into the Red Scare and McCarthyism.--From publisher description.
