Another myth bites the dust. (And be sure to read the comments for an education on the Disney strike, from primary sources.)
Ten commie screenwriters still lived in a glamourous California paradise (or Paris!), wrote scripts and got paid (albeit cut rates), they just had to put fake names on their work. Ha! Take THAT, Solzhenitsyn!
And when you read some of the names on the acting blacklist, you can’t help but wonder whether it was an excuse not to work with blowhards. Zero Mostel, anybody?
Performers love to exaggerate their victim status.
