When the Hollywood propaganda machine put propaganda on trial. A detailed look at the events leading up to the blacklisting of Hollywood writers and artists, especially members of the "Screen Writers Guild". In 1947, nineteen Hollywood personalities were subpoenaed by the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) to testify about their knowledge or possible involvement in the American Communist Party. The first ten to be called refused to cooperate, claiming their first amendment rights, were cited for contempt of Congress and sent to prison. They became known as the "Hollywood Ten" and this is their story.
